Tonight the Buffalo Sabres take on a newly resurgent Carolina Hurricanes team that has turned things around a little in the last week; wins over the Sabres, Islanders, and Panthers have them unbeaten in their last three. Buffalo is reeling, with 5 straight losses. As a Sabres fan, I think tonight would be a really good night to turn things around.
The big question is “what is wrong with the Sabres?” I hope it’s a slump; But the more I see of this team, the more they appear to need just a little more offensive firepower than they have right now. It wouldn’t hurt to also give a couple guys a press box seat for a game just to shock them out of their complacency.
I think there’s a real need to add a little to this team, but I am not confident that Darcy Regier’s going to make the move. Katebits and the guys from The Goose’s Roost scared the hell out of me with the following thoughts on Twitter the other day:
- Darcy will claim that getting Kaleta back from injury will be better than any trade.
- Darcy will claim that the two week Olympic break will be better than any trade.
That sounds exactly like Darcy. It also sounds exactly like a recipe for an early exit from the playoffs.
