    It happened so quickly, but then when you look back you can see it unfold. But when we were going through it for the last few years, it wasn't as obvious. We are the buffalo sabres....how long does this go on for now? How many years are we in for it?

    I think i've had 1 too many bourbons.
    Enough said

    Because nobody tanks on purpose? Although the Zib flu, and mystery Kreider injury are fishy.

    Its a stage. A pre preseason. Id like to gauge the talent levels in meaningful (to the opposition) games instead of preseason against scrubs...

    Tanking promotes loosing especially with the young guys. Bad idea!

    If you told me the Rangers would pot 3 tonight, I’d think they’d at least get into OT.

    Players don't. Management does. Or at least understand that they're best served not icing the best possible squad.

    Someone should do that voting thing..Tank or not to tank. I'm curious what the majority thinks. I'm a no tank guy. i believe in fostering a winning mentality, esp with young guys, and i tend to be a little superstitious too, like karma and stuff..and i really don't want the Rangers to be Buffalo. Didn't they tank in the McDavid lotto? And look where they are now.

    Prove it.

    The term "tank" is a colloquialism. We're not suggesting literally throwing games the way the Pens did to get Mario. We're suggesting the Rangers not do anything to marginally improve their club knowing that a poor finish to an already lost season could net them a franchise player.

    What Ranger team are you watching? if you told me they'd score 3 against TB, i'd wonder if the Lighting kept it less than 10 against us.

    Buffalo is a prime example of why there are no shortcuts to rebuilding a team properly. That's how you end up with Benoit Pouliot in your top-six.

    The young guys are trying to win. They’re trying to stick in the show. If they’re losing, it’s not from lack of effort.
