The Buffalo Sabres have gone from being the best team in the league 2 years ago, to a middling franchise that is too good to get high draft picks but not good enough to be a playoff team.
The organization seems caught in a rut which they cannot seem to get out of. They have endured quite a bit of personnel losses with stars like Drury, Briere and Campbell moving on. It has taken some of the edge this team had that made them one of the league’s most exciting teams and they must find a way to get it back.

If there was yet another team who’s future is in doubt, its the Atlanta Thrashers. It seems there are several teams who’s financial dependence and stability is tied to on ice success and if not met, there may be serious repercussions.
The Thrashers are indeed one of those teams. They have never won a playoff game in their history, have unstable ownership and their franchise player may leave the team following the season as a UFA.
