Behind The Bench: Season slipping away for 'soft' Sabres

Feb 21, 2019

On this week's edition of WBFO's Behind The Bench, Buffalo Sabres reporter Bill Hoppe talks about a team in turmoil, which has lost three straight games and is falling out of the playoff race. Head coach Phil Housley called his team "soft" last week, but many fans blame him for the current state of affairs. How much fault falls on the shoulders of Housley and GM Jason Botterill, who has been inactive when it comes to improving the roster? How should Botterill approach the upcoming trade deadline? And what now for Kyle Okposo, who has suffered his third concussion in two years?
