Just when you think things could not get any worse in the 716, the Buffalo Sabres get whacked by the Boston Bruins in a nationally-televised game and now face the media and fan backlash that comes hand-in-hand with John Scott‘s ill-advised hit on Bruins’ forward Loui Eriksson during the third period of last night’s mess.
I’m not even going to attempt to go into detail about what I feel about Scott’s hit – I’ve already done so on Twitter and in the comments sections of a few posts here on the site, so there is no point in dwelling on that. Rather, I am going to outline the steps that the Buffalo Sabres HAVE to take if they want to salvage their reputation as an NHL team and go from being an absolute laughingstock to a relevant professional hockey team any time soon. I’m a fan, and I am sick of what I see, but there are ways to stop the bleeding, so let’s roll up our sleeves and get down to work.
