The Bolts are vying for a favorable seed and a deep run in the NHL’s “Second Season”, while the Sabres are selling everything but the bathroom fixtures, in complete rebuild mode.

With a 38-20-6 record, good for 82 points and second in the Atlantic division, Tampa Bay believes it is ready for the big time.

Featuring scoring sensation Steven Stamkos, breakthrough player Tyler Johnson and a treasure trove of other skilled European players, the Bolts have been near the top of the division and the Eastern Conference for the balance of the season.

In fact, it is only the Montreal Canadiens (also known as the stellar goaltending of Carey Price) that is keeping Tampa from the divisional crown.

The Buffalo Sabres franchise may as well be in a different universe. The Sabres are selling off literally anyone and everyone of value, jettisoning players at the deadline and grabbing prospects and draft picks with both hands.

Buffalo’s last deal was to ship their starting goalie Michal Neuvirth (which doesn’t say much to begin with) to the New York Islanders for their backup, Chad Johnson. Neuvirth will back up Jaroslav Halak on Long Island, while Johnson will surely be the worst starting goaltender in the NHL.

The franchise in the Queen City is trying to lose in every conceivable way, so it can stay at the bottom of the league standings and have the best probability of grabbing Connor McDavid with the first overall pick in the upcoming Draft.

It is tremendously likely now that Buffalo will get either McDavid or Jack Eichel with the second overall pick in an excellent Draft, and in doing so should grab the franchise player that can turn the franchise around.

Until then, it’s going to be ugly on the Great Lakes – no question.

Unless Tampa Bay sleepwalks though this game – unlikely on home ice and in its current position – this game should be a cakewalk. If Buffalo is not trying to actively lose games, it isn’t far off.

Evander Kane, the mercurial talent from Winnipeg that Buffalo acquired in exchange for Drew Stafford, Tyler Myers and draft picks, will not even play until next season. Sabres fans have to take their medicine and exercise patience.

Tampa’s potent scorers should light up Johnson early and often. The Sabres will just be looking to audition AHL players and see which young pieces are worth keeping to pair with McDavid/Eichel.
