So, you DO read my posts.  Shhh, don't tell anybody. 

 

I don't think it's the right move. I think it's the GM  projecting blame that should be directed at him.

Well he is having a press conference at 430.  I am with him on this. He will get us better over the summer after this draft

Boy, not a good year in the Housley household. Wife gets her ass kicked in an election for the US Senate and then Housley gets kicked to the curb after only two seasons...maybe he should have spent more time at the rink instead of in her election commercials...

Jason Botterill says Sabres' second-half collapse led to Phil Housley's dismissal as coach

 

Look, I'm not exactly a fan of Housley. But basically Housley is fired for getting his team to play way over their heads early in the season and because they played as actually constructed in the second half. 

 

Talk about deflection by a GM. And feed into the idiotic and unreasonable delusions of a fan base.  It's the ownership in Buffalo and the GM.  Yes, they're getting there but it would be a lot further if not for ineptitude.  Astounding. 

 

And no, it's not the same in Philly.  Well, only a little bit. 

 

You cannot expect a coach to keep half a team with no goaltending to keep performing at the level they were. 

 

Idiocy.

I’m sure Botterill feels much more at ease with his decision knowing you were behind him....

The Sabres could have had Scotty Bowman and the ghosts of Dick Irvin and Jack Adams behind the bench, and the team wouldn't have made the playoffs. As ever, though, sh|t rolls downhill. The GM doesn't get the coach enough good players, so the coach pays the price.

Botterill has picked up a bunch of good young players.  Are you criticizing Botterill?  Give the man time for Gods sake. I am ready to strangle Duquette for killing my baseball team, signing Davis to that ridiculous contract. Botterill has signed Skinner and a bunch of darn good guys in Ristolainen, Dahlin, Middlestadt and Bergland he could not have seen that coming. We will cash in these picks for O'Reilly and Evander and sail with them.  We need to get Ruff back in here and Miller.  That is what I would do.  Get rid of Hutton. And for the wisenheimeres that keep playing the Lehner card, did  anyone see him playing well?  And he still sucks in Shootouts. Botterill will get us in

I know it's not happening, but I sure would like to see Ted Nolan get another shot.

First I am hearing of this.  I would be OK with him.  I want Lindy Ruff.  I say Skinner signs.  He might be waiting to see how the team looks after the draft, and after Botterill wheels and deals these bloody pics we have coming.  Not only our own, but those for O'Reilly and Kane.  We got a good kid from Anaheim who can skate like the wind. We need forwards and a goalie. Unless the kid from Finland works out?  I say Skinner stays with Eichel

He might want to, if the other things work out in a way that he likes. The issue would be money, and I think that Buffalo management needs to be careful about how much they pay Eichel's wingers. This won't be the last guy to have a career year on his wing.
