    Tanking is for losers and creates a losing atmosphere.

    Vets get mad if rookies are try hards in training camp and make them look bad in skate drills... so what Risto is alluding to in this situation is very plausible.

    After the Sabres lose games they just call the other teams sweaty tryhards

    Didnt Sabres fans say the same thing about ROR? Maybe the Sabres need to look in the mirror.

    This. It's not one or two players. It's the whole team, players, coaches, management.

    I'd be embarrassed if I'd be a pro athlete on a team sucking that bad and I'd voice it too.

    That started when he came back to the NHL with Philly in 2012. I think he kept it going wherever he went after that (NJ, Boston, Dallas).

    Crosby entered the league surrounded by Lemieux, he entered a winning culture/ remains of one

    When did the Kings tank?

    Same with Pittsburgh actually. They were in financial distress not paying anyone more than tanking.

    Yea he said pretty much nothing about Sabres' culture. So fruitful trying to in-depth analyse something that was never said.

    Everything bad that happens to the Sabres is just karma for the 'hairy slug' jerseys.

    Everyone knows about the culture, and ROR was lambasted for saying it out loud. You've got to be able to read between the lines.

    If a player feels like working hard is something to be ashamed of, then there's a real problem. That my friends is on the leadership (coaches, captains, management, owner).

    Yes you are the only one, we like ado(even if it nothing):sarcasm:

    The only time ado is not good is when, it is about your team:laugh:, than you have to go on the defensive (which sucks, better to be on the offensive.)

    lol. You must be Dan Cloutier's mom.

    Those teams were both tank commanders. To say any differently is revisionist history.

    Him working hard doesn't help him a lot, I'd say. Once he was considered a future 1D, and now he isn't.

    Just like ROR was a locker room cancer and an overpayed average 2C? It`s hard to develop in a bad environment.

    I am certainly on Risto side here. Sounds really really bad in Sabresland.

    This is a Risto being insecure problem with what is shown in the excerpt. Not a culture issue

    LOL says the Blues fan. Hoping Risto gets traded to you guys for scraps and repeat?

    40+ point dman making $5.4M for another 3 years is gold to a team that uses him the right way. he's a 2nd line PP specialist. Use him like Tyson Barrie and not Kevin Shattenkirk and he'll do very well wherever.

    Having them in the first place was punishment enough.

    He'd only hurt their chances if he's displacing a smarter dman.
