The Buffalo Sabres are in a dire spot with long-term injuries to Jeff Skinner and Victor Olofsson. Not much star power left on this club other than Jack Eichel. Let's not forget that Rasmus Dahlin is only 19. For this team to stay afloat, guys are going to have to fill roles and step into bigger ones. Maybe even overachieve some. Sure sounds like 1997. Remember "The Har…
