Last season, Sabres GM Darcy Regier found out the hard way that a new owner with deep pockets doesn't necessarily translate into an instant contender on the ice. A spending spree that added Christian Ehrhoff, Ville Leino and Robyn Regehr was uncharted territory for the formerly cash-strapped club, but the chemistry wasn't there and the injuries hit early and often.
A strong finish to the season almost secured a playoff spot, but the Sabres narrowly missed the post-season for the second time in three years.
It remains to be seen which version of the Sabres we see this season; the sluggish, disinterested bunch from last season's first half, or the high-octane juggernaut that emerged following the All-Star break.
