Sabres veterans reflect on season and admit “We weren’t good enough

The hunger for accountability within the Sabres’ dressing room stems from a belief that the team is capable of more than they showed this season. Despite playing through injuries, Thompson scored 29 goals but admitted that he needs to be better. Tuch, who tied for the team lead with 59 points, felt he started the season slowly and is determined to improve.

Both players stressed the need for personal accountability, with Thompson emphasizing the team’s collective responsibility for their performance. Tuch expressed that missing the playoffs will fuel his offseason training, echoing similar sentiments from Dylan Cozens. He emphasized his determination to push himself to new limits to prepare for the next season, showcasing his strong motivation and drive to improve.

On Wednesday, Adams reiterated his belief in the Sabres’ core roster, highlighting breakout seasons for JJ Peterka and Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen. Despite facing long-term injuries, Jack Quinn made an impact while in the lineup. Furthermore, the players, including Dahlin, remain committed to building a winning team in Buffalo.

While acknowledging their underachievement, they are resolute in their belief and motivation to succeed, expressing a renewed determination after a challenging season. Dahlin also suggested that some changes may benefit the team, indicating a willingness to adapt and improve for the future.
