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

    Yesterday at 11:42:55 PM

  • Scalious: JMAC.. I believe OUDAN timed out in BTL MLB. So you can make a pick
    Yesterday at 11:43:46 PM
  • Calvin: and picks are valuable, but i would assume that a higher bounty would be paid on cameron than gordon
    Yesterday at 11:44:06 PM
  • Calvin: gordon would work better as a player dealt to another rebuilding team imo

  • JMAC: pick 15.and.45.tbis season could have been an.allen robinson or.jordan matthews and a isaiah crowell or mckinnon type. Pretty solid in.32.team contract.league. Again to.each his own though

  • Calvin: i've seen worse trades, i understand the rational behind it
    Yesterday at 11:44:51 PM
  • Corey: interesting deal. In MB NE LOR SD trades cannot occur between 2 teams if they have the same owner and he gms one of them
    Yesterday at 11:44:51 PM
  • Scalious: How are they worthless? Id imagine at least 1 of them has a low re-sign value
    Yesterday at 11:44:55 PM
  • Calvin: exactly
    Yesterday at 11:45:00 PM
  • Gilly: Thanks Calvin, I will take that into thoughts when I rework or look elsewhere should it be veto-ed, thank u sir
    Yesterday at 11:45:18 PM
  • Calvin: wait what's worthless?
    Yesterday at 11:45:32 PM
  • Calvin: np gilly, I understand that 1sts and seconds are quite big
    Yesterday at 11:45:52 PM
  • Calvin: but cameron is a top TE now (not easy to come by), and Gordon, if you can sit on the risk of him being further suspended, he would be a high homerun value
    Yesterday at 11:46:24 PM
  • Capn Cally: On I haven't looked haha I figured you were dumping picks again to get a sweet player. Roles reversed this time around eh? But it's a heck of a lot different in a football league since there's more than 6 positions to fill in like hockey haha
    Yesterday at 11:46:28 PM
  • JMAC: there is no.such thing as worthless offensive players in.nflc, guys like hester cost 8.5m and scrubs like.louis murphy are going.for 2m.plus for.3 yrs. There is plenty of.value in all.offensive players in.this deep.of a league. Many differing.opinions though obviously. LOL
