Buffalo is averaging 1.61 goals-per-game, with 25.1 shots-per-game, ranking worst in the NHL in both categories. The Sabres have converted on 14.5 percent of their power plays this season, which ranks them 24th in the league. Considering these staggering stats, Buffalo has some work to do.
The Sabres have been off since Sunday and won't play again until tomorrow when they host the New York Rangers. It's clear that offensive production is something they should be focusing on during their mini break. The Sabres mustered just 13 shots against the New Jersey Devils Saturday, which is embarrassing even for Buffalo.
The Sabres have earned a league-worst 14 points in 28 games this season. The chances of them turning the year around are minute at best. However, the futility the Sabres have displayed is simply not acceptable for a team in the NHL. Sabres interim head coach Ted Nolan constantly reminds his players that they're in the National Hockey League, and that hard work will give them a chance to win. This is true, however, they need to find a way to create offense in a league that has been changed to create more of it.
