Buffalo is not a huge sports city, so the fans truly love their franchises. This is true for the Bills and the Sabres, which is why Buffalo Sabres tickets to the First Niagara Center are such a hot item in Western New York. Luckily, unlike the football counterparts, the professional hockey franchise has consistently played a winning brand of hockey.
Since the last lockout, the Buffalo Sabres have never posted fewer than 39 wins. They have won the Northeast Division twice and come within a conference final of attempting to bring the Stanley Cup trophy back home. The team has had three other chances to do so, but has yet to add the ultimate championship to its franchise resume.
This season the Buffalo Sabres are not going to be playing for the Stanley Cup trophy. Instead, they will be taking to the ice to reach the Stanley Cup playoffs after just missing last season. In the fans eyes, the 2013 NHL regular season is about redemption. It is about wing Drew Stafford proving he did not just have a contract year two seasons ago. It is about Christian Ehrhoff proving he is worth the remainder of his long term contract. It is about young center Cody Hodgson proving he is capable of playing not only in the NHL, but on the first line. It is about the defense proving it can help Ryan Miller and not impede him.
The major hurdle is, first and foremost, the regular season schedule. With 48 games in 100 days there are few chances to rest and few chances for a team to fight a negative momentum. This team stuck in no man’s land, between contention and exile at the bottom of the standings. If the number of young forwards continues to develop then the front office can begin making the slight adjustments to the roster to put the hockey team in position to compete with the Bruins for the division title and with the rest of the postseason contenders for the Cup.
