The tank didn’t ____

  • Trade Mark Pysyk
  • Acquire Dmitry 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
  • Wait too long to waive Matt Moulson
  • Take apart a good team (They were bad. We hated them. Look into it.)
  • 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 first round pick for Robin Lehner
  • Miss the opportunity to take Brock Boeser as a result of the Lehner trade
  • Claim Jordan Nolan off waivers
  • 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 overall 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 Rochester 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.
