There is something dramatically wrong with the Buffalo Sabres. They always seem to struggle against the Devils and they continue to have injuries to some key players, but two even strength scoring chances is disgraceful.

I have been one of the people preaching patience but mine is starting wear thin. I don't know what the answer is but the team needs a shake up. I don't know if that means that some players need to be moved or if the coach needs to go, I only know they are in need of a shake up.
