Now that I've had the opportunity to watch the Sabres through the first two weeks of the season, I have to say I'm impressed by the teams ability to win tight games. Other than the lucky bounce the Habs got in the opener that cost them a point, I think its fair to say that while most of the pieces of the puzzle are the same (coaches and players), the ability to finish close games has changed since last year.
But one thing can undue all of it. If the Sabres decide to send Tyler Myers back to juniors before his 10 game allowance, it will send a clear signal to the team and fans that the they clearly have their mind set on saving money and not reaching the playoffs. I'm not saying Myers is the next great defenseman in the league, but after 4 games you can tell he belongs in the NHL. But he has been as solid as any other blue-liner so far.
By the way, great job with the site D.O., keep up the fantastic work!!
