I totally disagree about coaching. The Sabres should not be hiring a developing coach to develop their prospects. It should be a proven coach who knows what he's doing at the pro level. I think they failed with Rolston.

I think the ECHL would be good for Leduc, though I know many people here think the league is a joke. Maybe 10 years ago. It's much improved.
