  • CRS245: H2H Showdown [link] Classifieds post: You can change your lineup daily and use any player you want.  You can join the league by pairing up against someone else.  For example, if OUDAN and JMAC want to place a bet against each other to see who wins this season for $25 each then they each join the league and pay $25 to the pot.  The winner between them wins $50 at the end of the year.  OUDAN could then challenge Gilly to a $10 bet, and each of them pay $10 to the pot.  OUDAN would field one single team in this case but have at least two bets.  For a $35 entry, he could win $0, $20, $50, or $70.

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
