Jim Kelley isn’t just a good guy, he’s still one of the best at dissecting the NHL. In this week’s column at Sportsnet.ca, Kelley rips the Sabres at the bottom of his column — and this came before Daniel Briere scored Wednesday to lift Philly.
Is there an NHL team that looks dumber or cheaper than the Buffalo Sabres right now?
Former Sabre Danny Briere, who practically begged the Sabres to give him a reasonable contract offer last season, is leading the league in playoff scoring and is a big reason that the Flyers still have a chance to go from worst to first in a single season. The Sabres made it clear they had no interest in signing Briere (though for the record they did make a token effort hours before free agency opened, an effort that reminded many of their “attempt” to re-sign Ted Nolan as coach a decade earlier).
