Sometimes you just need to accept that your competition is better. Twenty days ago the Buffalo Sabres had 44 points and the Oilers had 48. The Sabres had two games in hand and some wondered if the Oilers could grab 30th spot once again.

In a short span of 20 days, the Sabres have shown they are much more deserving of a 30th place finish. It was a close race less than three weeks ago, but the Sabres desire, commitment and determination to finish 30th was too much for the Oilers to overcome. The Sabres have lost seven straight and now have a 13-point cushion on the Oilers in the "Be Bad of Ekblad" sweepstakes.

Give them credit, when the race for 30th heated up the Sabres ran away with it. They've earned their position, and on April 15th they will have the best chance, 25%, of winning the draft lottery.
