03:33 PM ET 03.15 | The Buffalo Sabres gave struggling defenseman Tyler Myers a vote of confidence on Friday morning. Myers has had a difficult time this season and was even a healthy scratch at one point. According to Myers, the team wants him to simplify his approach to the game by focusing on defense and not worrying about the amount of points he contributes. Having gone seven games without a point, Myers only has four points this season. Despite this low offensive output, the organization wants him to focus on becoming more reliable in the defensive zone. Once he solidifies play in his own end, he hopes to rush the puck more, which could lead to more offense.

aint that the truth. He's absolutely terrible. He's still young and can turn it around, but based on the sample size I'm more likely to predict major bust.

Not saying they have the same skill set by any means, but there was a time when most experts thought Chara was too big and too slow to amount to anything, and his numbers backed it up. He needs the right coaching, and someone to convince him to use his size and stop trying to be Giant Lidstrom.

Ya think? Isn't that what a D-man is supposed to do?

Sorry, pal. Got some bad news: There's no known cure for that disease as yet.
