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

    April 24, 2016, 09:47:01 PM
  • Jonathan: I am fine with trading Bradford, but only if they get what they ended up giving the rams in draft pick compensation. Maybe Chip wants hiim lol
    April 24, 2016, 09:48:09 PM
  • Jonathan: eiither way, these 2 QB with be highly debated over next 4 days.
    April 24, 2016, 09:48:39 PM
  • Jonathan: Pretty crazy that Eagles, Phillies and Sixers will all pick in top 2 of draft. Rock Bottom
    April 24, 2016, 09:53:38 PM
  • Jonathan: Phillies should take Puk, Broome, Pint or Hansen. SS Perez could be the next hit out of PR
    April 24, 2016, 10:02:18 PM
  • Daddy: Lol maybe Chip wants him :rofl:
    April 25, 2016, 12:04:37 AM

  • Daddy: Did I miss the NBA draft lottery?
    April 25, 2016, 12:05:22 AM
  • Daddy: 76ers need a top 2 pick, hell they need 1 and 2 really, but I hope they get the 1st pick.
    April 25, 2016, 12:06:16 AM
  • Jonathan: Nope, it should be anytime though. Pretty safe they get 1 or 2 lol
    April 25, 2016, 12:18:47 AM
  • Jonathan: Its during conference finals i believe
    April 25, 2016, 12:19:39 AM
  • themarksman13: They can't get 1 and 2 tho

    April 25, 2016, 12:36:08 PM
  • Jonathan: I guess that is the leagues out on stealing that pick. lol
    April 25, 2016, 12:44:59 PM
  • Jonathan: They can still easily go 3-1 with the schedule. Cards gonna spank them.
    April 25, 2016, 12:46:03 PM
  • Jonathan: Just like they did in that trade.
    April 25, 2016, 12:49:13 PM
  • Jonathan: They should do us all a favor and not appeal.
    April 25, 2016, 12:57:05 PM
  • Daddy: Brady gets his 4 games, it's a rap no more appeals.
    April 25, 2016, 02:11:17 PM
  • Daddy: Patriots will draft another 2nd round QB
    April 25, 2016, 02:12:09 PM
  • Jonathan: Pretty sure he can still appeal at the highest court, Supreme court...... but that is how ridiculous this is lol

  • cfarris1985: the saga continues, lol
    April 25, 2016, 03:08:52 PM
  • Tubbs: The odds of him having his case heard again are very very slim. Less than 1% chance to get to SC.
    April 25, 2016, 04:43:19 PM
  • Tubbs: Better chance that he gets the whole 2d circuit to rehear the case. But that is slim, too.
    April 25, 2016, 04:44:17 PM
  • Jonathan: about as slim as the Warriors have at repeating without Curry
    April 25, 2016, 05:24:45 PM
  • themarksman13: Well, it's probably only 2-3 weeks
    April 25, 2016, 05:29:19 PM
  • Jonathan: tough to lose the MVP
    April 25, 2016, 05:44:02 PM
  • Jonathan: As long as he is back for Spurs, they can do it.
    April 25, 2016, 05:45:12 PM
  • Jonathan: Love to be Rockets. 0% chance curry plays
    April 25, 2016, 05:46:18 PM
