Congratulations Buffalo Sabres. The last month and a half apparently will go for naught. With an abysmal performance at home in a must win game the entire team no showed. A 5-3 L to that goalie? Really?
I can't wait for the press conference at the end of the year saying that injuries and a lack of continuity were the only reasons the Sabres finished in a "courageous" 9th place in a mediocre NHL.
Lindy Ruff and Darcy Regier deserve to be proud of their great performance this year leading the Sabres to yet another failure of a season. Give me a god damn break. Where was the desperation in December or January when this team was losing 12 straight games on the road? Are we as fans supposed to take solace in the team playing really well late in the season? A battle to become the eight best team in the conference?
When did our standards fall so far? When did paying $50 for a regular season game ticket to watch a team that can't even finish in the top 15 of the league become worth it? When will this franchise disassociate itself with all of the losers in this organization?
Hey there is always next year right?
