    Goals scored last night by 4 guys that have to be keys to next season: Benson, Quinn, Tuch & Cozens.

    Both the Sabres & the Devils are 38-37-5 for 81 points. Not good enough for the Devils ownership who fired their coach mid-season. But perfectly fine for Terry Pegula.

    Cozens needed there to be no goalie to score. He's been the biggest disappointment this season. Everyone else has at least had some good spurts. He's been pretty much invisible all year. Got paid and then disappears. I don't like guys who do that. I'd still trade him for the right deal.

    I expect a big leap from Quinn next season.

    I mean. I get it. But the Sabres turn around the second half I think may have saved him as well. It wasn't a dramatic mad dash, but the fact that they were playing a 72 point pace till Jan 1 and somehow crawled back into the playoffs discussion despite a very difficult schedule definitely didn't hurt him. I'm not saying that's the right move, just that the Sabres clearly improved.

    Really, it's the power play left holding the bag. If the PP is even average, season ticket holders are buying playoff tickets as we speak. And Adams has to ask Granato why the PP continued to be abysmal. Ellis is fine if coaching the PK. But the PP? What's next? Rhett Warrener coaching shootouts?

    I'm not comparing Yzerman to Cozens, but Im using it as context.

    The maintenance day guys talked about cozens improving his defense and how he hasn't looked comfortable trying to round out his game. He doesn't look natural at it.

    Here's where Yzerman comes in. Bowman famously told Yzerman that if he wanted to win in the league, he would need to commit to defense. As a result, Yzermans offensive numbers, which at one time, he had 155 points in a season and almost 140 another. But they dipped considerably.. still an offensive threat, but he wasn't like Gretzky, Mario, and like Hull putting out gaudy numbers anymore.

    I'm not saying it's exactly that. I'm just using it as context to drive consideration when evaluating Cozens.

    The reality is probably that cozens focused more on the defensive aspects of the game, and the coaching staff didn't do a good job of prepping him for that and he never got comfortable expanding his game. Couple that with the injury early in the year, and probably just a bad season (by his standards) and you get this.

    As far as trading him goes, I dont think ANYONE is untouchable.... if the right deal comes along. But Cozens will bounce back. He's young. The Sabres already have to fill the 3C spot..no reason to make things difficult by adding a 2C to the shipping list.
