Alright, alright lets see. The Sabres haven't made the playoffs in 5 years. They have no veterans, basically no playoff experience, the franchise has never won a Stanley Cup, New York State has some of the highest taxes in the Nation and Steve Stamkos has zero ties to the area or the organization.
So the obvious answer is no. ZERO CHANCE! Wasn't Mike Babcock supposed to sign here last year? They have Eichel! A rich owner! A plethora of young prospects and assets! It wasn't even close. It seemed like Babcock never even considered Buffalo as an option and Stamkos is the exact same.
All those allegedly good things the Sabres had going for them hasn't changed. GM Tim Murray is a genius! I guess Matt Moulson considers him a genius but there is scant evidence from any unbiased sources that Murray is some sevant.
BUT HEY! WGR550 keeps talking about it so where there is smoke there is fire! Lol. Stand down Sabre nation fan boys. It aint happening.
