As the 2021-2022 NHL season comes to a close, many are questioning the Buffalo Sabres future. As the Sabres made great success this season, going 32-39-11, they still missed the playoffs for the 11th consecutive year, making it the longest NHL playoff drought in NHL History.
So what do the Sabres need to do in the off-season to improve their roster? In my opinion, the Buffalo Sabres need to resign Dustin Tokarski. I really liked his style of play this season. If the Sabres want to be playoff contending team this year, goaltending should be their number 1 priority. The reason why the Sabres should resign Dustin Tokaski is because Craig Anderson is getting older and Tokarski is younger and has a bright future for the Sabres if he does choose to stay. Craig Anderson was great and all, but he was slow in the crease and let in easy goals that they should have of been easy saves for an average goaltender.
As we finish up our talks with our goaltending situation, I want to now talk about Victor Olofsson. As we are about to lose Victor Olofsson, I would really like to see him back in the blue and gold. As he did pretty decent for our team, I truly do think keeping him around would be the smart move. He made beautiful plays in this season and keeping him would be the right move.
If I could keep everyone this season I would, but sadly this is business and we are going to see young stars come and go. I honestly cant wait to get to the draft and see what the Sabres will do in the draft this year.
