Darcy gets contract extension
 
Right out of Pegula's mouth at the press conference. No details released yet.

And by default, Ruff is coach for life. :sarcasm:

Fire Lindy 01-19-2013 11:20 AM

I like Darcy under Pegula, not mad at this.

Not sure why you used the sarcasm face...

It's true

S319R11S16 01-19-2013 11:22 AM

IMO its kind of stupid to do it right now. What if we blow this year?

More excuses?

I don't have much of a problem with it either, though it would have been nice to see how these 48 games go before making a long-term decision.

Dubi Doo 01-19-2013 11:24 AM

Sweeeet. This team is on the verge of becoming a very good team.

Yep, no complaints out of me.


When was his existing contract supposed to end? At the end of this year or next?

If we blow this year I think that's more an issue with whether or not to keep Ruff. I like what Darcy's done under Pegula. That's not to say I think he needed to be extended now but if they definitely were going to do it anyhow, may as well do it now and keep any rumors or gossip about his future from being a thing.

Insomniac99 01-19-2013 11:28 AM

People who hate Regier tend to still be looking at him as the Regier from the previous owners. If anything, all that time being a budget-oriented GM has made him that much better now that he has no restrictions. Anyone that can get a 1st for Gausted and turn him into Girgensons needs an award, let alone a contract extension.

TakeThatTootoo 01-19-2013 11:29 AM

Don't mind Darcy, but I do mind Ruff.

This..would personally be interested in a younger coach that may not be so stuck in his old ways.

Afino 01-19-2013 11:30 AM

I bet this thread will be wonderful.



I personally don't have an issue with this.

As long as Bucky doesn't start posting here, I think we'll be alright.

The only real issue i have with Darcy is, would he be able to let Ruff go if it becomes obvious he's not the right coach for this team.

HockeyH3aven 01-19-2013 11:34 AM

This is pretty strange timing. I like Darcy, but if we're talking about basing contracts on merit I don't see how he deserves it right now.

aceface33 01-19-2013 11:35 AM

Pegula on Lindy: He can change, he's open minded. Can coach an offensively open team or a defensive team. He's very forthcoming about his shortcomings and obligations. He's able to make the changes he needs to be a good coach.

Might not really be in his hands if it gets to that point, but it's a valid concern

aceface33 01-19-2013 11:37 AM

Also, Pegula (or Regier? Somebody, a reporter is referring to it in a question) apparently said that he wants to see Ryan Miller retire as a Sabre.

New Sabres Captain 01-19-2013 11:40 AM

I would have waited to see how this season goes first, but I have no qualms with Regier and co.

Darcy's reaction upon hearing he got an extension.

Enjoy! :handclap:

I think they resign Pommer, trade Vanek at the deadline next year unless they're a contender (in which case he walks after the PO), and re-evaluate their stance on Miller after this year.

Wisent42 01-19-2013 11:54 AM

I like this. Darcy has done a good job gathering good players. What happens on the ice is not really in his hands. I would how ever say that Ruff needs to start winning. Darcy's given him a good group of players.
