I was in the sparsely-populated chat last night, along with Jame and a few others. With both Roy and Ruff gone, I fear Jame will now take up knitting. Man-hug, bro...

As I've posted before, I was watching on TV the game where Billy Smith intentionally took out Lindy Ruff's eye. Along with Rip Simonik, I know of no other individual with service to the Sabres in all 5 decades of their existence, though there may indeed be others. A sobering thought, indeed.

Regardless of the change in coach, (and Ruff's new role and duration, and/or lack thereof), more changes are needed in Talent, System, and Effort in order for Buffalo to legit compete for the Cup. To that end, I hope this is a (certainly Very Big) first step.

From Journey "Where Were You?"

I wouldn't know what the hell was goin' on
Someday you're gonna break
So don't try to get yourself straight
You're just a little too late

Where were you?
Where were you?
Where were you?
Where were you?
(When they fired Lindy Ruff?)
