Grading the Buffalo Sabres - The end could not come fast enough

Vote in the player grades polls for the last fortnight

NHL: Buffalo Sabres at Columbus Blue Jackets Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

Your Three Stars from the last poll: the Power Play, Jack Eichel and the Penalty Kill. The Three Goats are Zemgus Girgensons, Justin Bailey and Casey Nelson. Here is the LINK to the spreadsheet with all of this season’s results.


The last two weeks of the Buffalo Sabres regular season just seemed to drag on and on, and the fans (and most probably the players too) just needed to be put out of their misery.

The Sabres end the season the sixth-worst team in the League, and will be picking sixth in the 2017 NHL Draft unless the lottery gods intervene in the form of a top three spot.

As always, we’ve got all the forwards and defensemen who played over the past week in the grading.

We’re sticking with the Corsi For % as well the stats beyond just the goals, assists and +/-. For Dan Bylsma we’ve added the team’s overall Corsi For % as a measurable stat.

Rate the players’, PP, PK and coach’s performances for these games -

Buffalo Sabres 4-2 Florida Panthers

Columbus Blue Jackets 3-1 Buffalo Sabres

Buffalo Sabres 2-4 New York Islanders

Buffalo Sabres 2-4 Toronto Maple Leafs

Florida Panthers 3-0 Buffalo Sabres
