How Low Will The Buffalo Sabres Go?

While they might not sit dead last in the NHL just yet with 3 more games played than the Carolina Hurricanes, make no mistake, the Buffalo Sabres are the worst team in the league and it's not even close. Last year, the Sabres had the worst record in the three-point game era going 21-51-10 with 52 points. This year, they could go even lower.

Here are some fun stats to tell your buddies about just how bad the Sabres are:
The next 69 games don't look too promising for the Sabres and we're pretty sure not too many people would argue if they let the team fly over to Switzerland in December to play in the Spengler Cup. Their coach, Ted Nolan, has likened them to a peewee team and when your GM is upset that their draft lottery odds were decreased 3 months before the season starts you know that this team is not built to win, but fail spectacularly. Just like the 1983-84 Pittsburgh Penguins, it looks like the Sabres are playing to lose in order to turn the franchise around with a generational talent like Connor McDavid:

  1. Wish the NHL would change the draft lottery even more. Tanking is a disgusting part of the NHL the last decade.
