    McDavid's team sucks too.

    But Saying Mario Lemiuex is better than Jaromir Jagr doesnt make Jagr a bust.
    Just Buffalo's luck I guess.

    You can see the lack of confidence in Eichels game. He knows he's not playing well. In result, you see a lack of shooting and terrible passing.

    The problem is that Jack is not a franchise player. Soon as he and the Sabres realize this the team will be better off.

    Sad, but they did everything right except win the lottery. Not sure what else you can do except start over.

    I do like the point that Jack is not a super-superstar, you need someone else to fill that role. He is more like a Malkin, not a Crosby.

    Eichel is an up and coming superstar, but he can't do it alone. He also will have great games and then have not so great games. McDavid is the same way. He is great and then where did he go.
    Sabres are still rebuilding. They are a young team with a new system and a new GM and a new coach. It may take a year, it may take two. They will eventually be good. Winning the lottery and drafting a top tier defensemen would help. Getting a real starting goalie would be a difference maker!

  10. Rock on:

    Speed kills and lack of speeds kills a team in the NHL. Looking at the players in the system, Iím confident that the Sabres are developing the right type of talent. Guhle, Pu, Nylander, Bailey, Mittelstadt, et al are the right fit for the current NHL.

    Itís time to make some big moves and give these young guys some experience with the big club
