Lindy gets coached to coach right? Maybe he should try to have our centers work on faceoffs?

Oh of course not, he's going to be too busy giving Hecht a back massage.

You'd think a Russian killed someone dear to him the way he misuses them.

B: Refs seemed to kill the flow of the game. More than usual anyway.

It's not a good team. Just watch what happens to them when Miller isn't saving pucks at a .950 clip. They're going to get shelled. They have no defensive center that can do the heavy lifting in the defensive zone and win faceoffs consistently. Their blueline is below-average.

If Miller gets hurt this year, this team will be picking in the top-5. Probably not high enough to get Seth Jones, sadly.

I don't feel like micro-analysing right now. Carolina's goalie stood on his head on won the game for them. It really is that simple. Happens sometimes.

Pegula said he believes Lindy has the ability to "change"

Sorry but you can't teach an old dog new tricks, he has already reverted back to his old self.

Huh? I'm sure you're being facetious. Three years still not enough time I guess? 22 years old still too young? He's ready yet Grigs can't even get some decent time on ice? Let's make excuses for him because he's 6'8 and has 'potential' to be good. Never mind his humungous contract that most definitely should be considered...

I can be facetious too.

It's the same old at this point with the majority of this team. It's a reflection of the coach.

Agreed, while they may have the center depth in the system (very young and raw) the lack of a potential top pairing defenseman is concerning....I'm not convinced Myers has the head to take his game to the next level...If he does it is still years away.

The Buffalo Sabres make very backup goalie play like the second coming of Patrick Roy.

It's so ****ing predictable, it's ridiculous.

Watch this. This is what's wrong with face offs. Not just Ennis but the mentality he has. The reporter gave him like 3 tries to just say they suck at face-offs and Ennis is basically like #YOLO SWAG THUGLIFE

If anything, about every coach in the league knows Ruff and his style and what they'll see on a given night. It's been the same for 2-3 seasons and only Miller makes Ruff look semi-good.

My God, what a talent killer Ruff is.
He should be fired immediately for his bungling of the Grigorenko situation. What an outrage.

Lindy Ruff : "I think we should send Grigorenko back to Quebec"
