Quite limited in terms of options there if I've morphed into Darthcy Regier.

If that's my mindset, I know why Bucky's article all of a sudden has more legitimacy.

I would fire Ruff, don't want to take the chance of O'rielly saving Lindy's job.

I voted to trade for RoR. Personally, I don't think the trade would save Lindy's job. RoR is an excellent player, and seemingly exactly what the team needs. However, Lindy's "system" seems to be the problem, so while this move makes the roster stronger presumably, his system would still achieve negative results, thus ending in his being fired.

Lets just change another player! That will fix everything!

We've changed owners, players, assistants, large amounts of the arena (even the name), and a massive amount of staff. Yet the on ice product has been the same for about 4/5 seasons.

But this one player will save us all!

I'd rather get O'Reilly and have them tank enough under ruff that he hopefully gets fired at the end of the year. So then going into next year we'd have a high draft pick, ROR, and a new coach

If you start bringing signs, you'll catch some heat by a few Lindy supporters. But stay strong, and I think eventually, you'll get a few supporters. Then a section of supporters. Then sections of supporters with similar signs. Last Sunday a guy in my section yelled 5-6 times "I want a new coach"! And I yelled back "so do I"!

So it's juuuuuust starting to permeate to vocal discontent at the arena. Once signs are made, people will realize they are not alone. Make a sign. Hell, make a few signs and pass them out to a few fans that agree with you.


Oh, and welcome aboard!

While both would be nice and make the fan base and Jack excited...

I voted for the trade. Darth Reiger wont fire Lindy mid-season anyway. So make the trade, see how the season plays out and then fire Lindy if warranted.

We gotta start somehow his time is long overdue and the lindy supporters must have lost their glasses on the way to the seats because were watching different games then! Even if they don't like my signs its all about the love of the game and the love for the sabres!

With trading for ROR would you consider Sekera Girgensons and Gerbe? I think the avs would like that deal because it gives them depth all at positions something av fans wanted a top 4 D a LW and a C possibly LW if they decide to go down that path and gerbe also can play RW would help them out with his versatility.

For O'Reilly's sake I hope he doest get traded to Buffalo. Lindiot is just going to ruin him by playing him with 4th liners. The kid has a lot of potential. Why anyone would want him to be Ruffed up is beyond me.

I'm for an offer sheet for O'really that would give them a 2nd round pick. I think $2.5 mill would do it. If his course has really been run there as it appears, they won't match to pay a locker room cancer that much, and he will be happy just to be back playing for a team that isn't notoriously cheap.

DO IT!

Off Topic: Jack Edwards is alright, and his call on Vanek's hattrick was better than any call RJ made this year. Plus NESN's production kills MSGs.

On Topic: 100% trade. As much as I hate Lindy for being stubborn in how he handles his players, I want ROR in a Sabres uniform.

OT: Jack is the worst. Period. Can't believe he's being compared to RJ in any manner.

ON T: why wouldn't you just offer sheet him? If they match, they have to keep his unhappy ass for a year. On a crappy club, I suppose it's possible, but doubtful. Do ya think Hejduk will want to play his last season on a line with a guy who hates the organization who was forced to finally pay him what they clearly now feel he's worth?
