I often find that my perspective on things changes with time and experience, as I know hope yours does as well. Thankfully, I don't have the same views, opinions, and habits as I did as a college freshman, or a graduate, or even 6 months ago. It's now been about 2 months since the Sabres were still playing, so I'm wondering if you still have the same impressions of the regular season that you did on April 11, when it ended. Of course, the division title looks less illustrious with the playoff loss, but many of us saw red flags with this team during the regualar season. I'm wondering if any of these "defining moments" look more or less like true representations of the team now that we've seen their playoff performance and had time to reflect on it. Check the two links below and let us know how you feel!
