The buck stops with Adams, Granato
It's as if not acquiring a PROVEN goaltender for your two young goalies wasn't the best decision. At the end of the day, both Don Granato and Kevyn Adams need some blame as well for the regression. After what seemed to be a hopeful offseason turned out to be a complete dud.
Whatever Granato is doing is clearly not working and Adams not doing enough in the offseason is coming back to get them. At the end of the day, both the team and management deserve the blame. It is basically the same team from last year and from watching them this season, they look like a rebuilding team which fans know all too well about.
While they still have four more months to turn it around, the Buffalo Sabres have regressed and something needs to change if they hope to turn it around before it's too late.
