Vanishing Hopes In Buffalo

11/22/2022 at 9:17am EST

from Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News,

This can't be happening again.

The way last season ended, you wanted to believe General Manager Kevyn Adams and coach Don Granato were different. You wanted to believe that, finally, someone had an actual plan to lift the Buffalo Sabres out of their decade-long stay in the abyss of the NHL. The way this season started, your faith was reaffirmed.

Remember on Nov. 2 how old Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin & Co. looked trying to chase the Sabres around the ice in the third period at KeyBank Center?

But is that all we're going to get this year? One month of hope?

In a season that has badly boomeranged the wrong way, the Sabres are 7-11 and have dropped eight consecutive games – seven by multiple goals. They would have the longest losing streak in the NHL this season if they don't beat Montreal on Tuesday night in Bell Centre.

Payback for the Wings is coming soon to the LCA.

I’m not a Sabres hater and in fact would like it if they could shake up the Atlantic, just not at the expense of the Wings. Their main guys are still pretty young. Wings fans can only commiserate—we’ve had a few promising starts only to later watch a collapse. For all we know it could still be coming. 

But, if Buffalo and for that matter Ottawa fans were convinced this was theiryear, they were lying to themselves.
