The tank didn’t ____


Trade Mark Pysyk

Acquire Dmitri Kulikov

Fail to offer sheet Nikita Kucherov

Fail to offer sheet… ok, well anyone.

Play Matt Tennyson like he was Chris Pronger early in the year.

Sign up for the wrong color blue

Hire Dan Bylsma

Fire Dan Bylsma

Sign Matt Moulson

Take apart a good team (They were bad.  We hated them. Look into it.)

Wait too long to waive Matt Moulson

Injure Zach Bogosian

Plague Beaulieu with injuries

Trade for Beaulieu (is he good?… do we know anything?)

Extend Ryan O’Reilly

Hire Phil Housley

Start Johan Larsson at center against Edmonton

Trade a 1st for Robin Lehner

Miss the opportunity to take Brock Boeser as a result of the Lehner trade

Sign Jordan Nolan

Lose any lotteries

Draft Alex Nylander (Who still might be good)

Pass on Mikhail Sergachev

Pass on Jacob Chychrun

Pass on Cam Fowler for the 8th pick

Kill the power play

Give up shorthanded goals

Miss out on Mike Babcock

Overpay and then buyout Cody Hodgson

Overpay and then buyout Ville Leino

Sit Antipin in the press box for the guy-of-the-night

Sign Antipin

Keep Brendan Guhle in Roch for development

Add ZERO impact players after the day of Eichel’s draft

Make the team slow 

Give Auston Matthews to the Leafs

Kill Jake McCabe’s game

Teach the players acquired AFTER it that losing was ok

Let a team that was dying, die last year (that was Tim Murray)

Kill the locker room, cause the only guys left are considered warriors

Contribute to a “losing culture”



And one thing we can agree to…

The tank didn’t fix all the Sabres problems.



So while a few of you like to try to tell me the tank didn’t work… Think it’s worth pointing out all the other things it didn’t do.  


If the Sabres are ever gonna fix it, it’s important that they know what did, and didn’t work.
