The Buffalo Sabres have officially fallen off the Stanley Cup's radar.

The Sabres now have a 0.0 percent chance of winning the National Hockey League's championship trophy this season, according to Sports Club Stats, a North Carolina-based website that simulates league play in all major sports.

The Sabres' odds were pegged at 0.2 percent a week ago, but the team subsequently suffered a disastrous period marked by the firing of longtime coach Lindy Ruff and back-to-back losses to the Toronto Maple Leafs and New York Islanders.

Sports Club Stats says the Sabres still have a 0.8 percent chance of squeaking into the NHL playoffs this year. The only team with lower playoff odds is the Columbus Blue Jackets at 0.6 percent.
