Ruff Canned
« on: February 20, 2013, 05:08:00 PM »
The Sabres slow drop in the standings have resulted in their head coach getting the can. Ruff began coaching the team in 1997-98 and had a record of 562-452-84.
Ruff was also the second-longest tenured coach in North American pro sports next to Gregg Popovich of the San Antonio Spurs.
The Sabres are definitely in need of a culture change when you have a head coach for this long but I don't believe he will be out of work long as his style will be in high demand.

Ruff will be back for sure.  I think there is a lot going on in that locker room and he kind of lost some control.  It happens when you are somewhere for so long especially with Miller not getting any help!

Yeah they definitely needed a change in culture, and I don't think Ruff will be out of work for long.

Miller has been standing on his head this year, and hasn't gotten any help at all. I do think they do have some good pieces (Vanek, Ott, Tyler Myers), but I still think they need another top scorer.

Good coach tht wore out his stay and never changed his style with the change in the team. Just lost the guys it seemed.

He will get a fresh start somewhere (ala Bruce Boudreau) and do very well IMO

    Today at 01:41:45 AM
  • nmrch: even more than the prospects what cubs fans should be feeling good about is Theo Epstein
    Today at 01:42:01 AM

  • redbeard82: mazara could be a good power hitter i think
    Today at 01:42:41 AM
  • nmrch: A bad GM like Dayton Moore did nothing with a similar farm system a few years ago
    Today at 01:42:42 AM
  • Jonathan: ^ lets bring it back boys
    Today at 01:42:53 AM
  • nmrch: but he got lucky and backed it in toa fluky WS run
    Today at 01:43:10 AM
  • Jonathan: most missed icon on site
    Today at 01:43:20 AM
  • Brent: For sure.  I was stoked when we got him and he put his plan in place.  Get rid of overpaid old players, get any value possible, bring in some stop gap guys and accumulate talent.
    Today at 01:44:00 AM
  • Jonathan: most useful icon on site, i should say lol
    Today at 01:44:04 AM
  • nmrch: if the Cubs didn't have a good GM i wouldn't be that excited about them because prospects fail
    Today at 01:44:13 AM
  • Brent: Talk about Joe Maddon going to the Cubs, that would be cool.
    Today at 01:45:12 AM
  • nmrch: even the likes of Bryant, Soler, Baez and  andRussell
    Today at 01:45:28 AM
  • nmrch: look at the Royals, Hosmer was supposed to the Votto
    Today at 01:46:35 AM
  • nmrch: their farm system at its peakwas pretty impressive
    Today at 01:47:00 AM
  • nmrch: but Theo can deal with failed prospects
    Today at 01:47:22 AM
  • Brent: And look at Hosmer now and where's Votto?
    Today at 01:47:43 AM
  • nmrch: really?
    Today at 01:48:40 AM
  • Scalious: Look at the 06 d-backs farm system.. closer comp to the cubs farm now. IMO
    Today at 01:48:47 AM
  • nmrch: you're happy with Hosmer
    Today at 01:49:15 AM
  • nmrch: ~740 OPS in 4 seasons as a first basemen?
    Today at 01:49:28 AM
  • nmrch: even in an injury shortened season Votto put up a 800 ops
    Today at 01:50:18 AM
  • Brent: Hosmer is killing it in the post season, this could turn around his career.  Votto could have possibly peaked with his medical issues.
    Today at 01:50:21 AM
  • Brent: FWIW, I don't have Hosmer in any leagues, but I do have Votto.  I hope Votto comes back strong.

  • Jonathan: Amari Cooper's 185 receiving yards in the 1st quarter are the most by an SEC receiver in any quarter in the last 10 seasons. It's the 3rd-most by any FBS player in a quarter in that time span.
    Today at 03:00:10 AM
  • Jonathan: Amari Cooper set a school record with 224 receiving yards against Tennessee. Cooper passed Julio Jones, who had his then-record 221 receiving yards against the Volunteers as well.
