The Sabres will need to repeat history to make the playoffs

It's been a while, but we've been here before. This will be a tough sell. Not necessarily even because the math is tough, but convincing Sabres fans that this team is capable of the type of run it would take to make the postseason, is an unfair ask. Almost nothing about this team at the moment...
