Never should've let Dineen go...
That's exactly the thing. The same guy with roughly the same group, the message can get pretty stale. The message may or may not be as strong as it used to be. When Tom Renney was fired and replaced by John Tortorella, the Rangers were a really... really... offensively lacking, maybe even close to abysmal team. Full of all grinders and soon Gaborik. Call me out in whether or not this is true, but it seems like the message that Torts was sending was a hell of a lot different. Players put much more effort in, and more jam and heart was shown. Could the Sabres have the same reaction to a new coach? Yeah. Do we know for sure? No. Main point is if I was big front office brass, I'd start searching for some options that could be a potential help.
