A couple of Buffalo Sabres players made headlines this past week when they made some harsh comments towards the organization.
Jack Eichel and Rasmus Ristolainen both called out the organization for continuously pumping false hope but finishing with the same result, losing.
Eichel said he's tired of losing and that it's been a tough five years in Buffalo which have led to nothing but frustration.
Words that remind us of Ryan O'Reilly who said playing in Buffalo was draining the passion for hockey right out of him.
Head coach Ralph Krueger was asked about Eichel's comments.
"Across the board we are frustrated. We are not where we want to be," Krueger said in a conference call with reporters on Friday. "... It also shows that our core has a youth that is willing to reach for higher standards and now we need to do the work that backs that up."
It's going to be a very interesting story to follow in Buffalo this offseason especially since GM Jason Botterill has received a vote of confidence from the ownership group.
