28. Buffalo Sabres

Previous: No. 30

The Sabres are losers of three of their last four games.  In their last five games, they have not scored more than one goal.  They have not gotten any goal support from their defense.  In their 14 games played so far this year, their defensemen have scored a total of zero goals.

Evander Kane has stepped up his game this year, averaging nearly a point a game (14 games, 13 points, 7G, 6A).  But in order for this team to start becoming a threat, its defense needs to step up.
