Avs, Sabres, Lightning, Kings surprise NHL early - NHL.com - NHL Insider
Dan Rosen of NHL.com lists the Sabres as one of the surprise teams this season. I would take issue with that statement. I expected the Sabres to be a playoff team this season and I expect them to finish somewhere between fifth and seventh. I don't think that has changed because they have won three out four to start the season. This is a good team and if they get a couple of breaks they can be a great team.
