On this episode of Talking Buffalo, Sabres fans hopeful for a flashy upgrade to the line up as NHL free agency kicked off were left disappointed, and Patrick Moran talks about the new additions on a busy but splash-free opening to the offseason that has them questioning how bad things really are for the organization.

NHL free agent stars like Steven Stamkos, Tyler Bertuzzi, Tyler Toffoli and Jake Guentzel among others felt like a pipe dream to Sabres fans and that feeling came to fruition on Monday. Hell, the Sabres didn’t even really replace the recently bought out Jeff Skinner.

Buffalo did make a few signings with guys that realistically could improve their bottom six forward lines but aren’t players that resonated with fans. Patrick has thoughts on Buffalo overpaying for Jason Zucker, adding forwards Sam Lafferty and Nicholas Aube-Kubel as well as finding more depth at goaltending with Felix Sandstrom. The team also re-signed Jacob Bryson.

Patrick also goes back to the well on a take he’s been saying regularly since February–that the Sabres are the worst organization in all of pro sports right now with the proven fact that seemingly no one of value wants to come play here as part of the evidence. As explained, if the Sabres are going to end the longest drought in NHL history this coming season, it’s going to be because the players already on the roster show dramatic improvement and find a way to stay collectively healthy. That and plenty more.
