New Coach Discussion (Ron Rolston Interim Head Coach)

Interim tags aside, who do you want in place of Ruff permanently??

How many of you want an immediate answer vs. how many of you want a thorough, legitimate search with an interim guy in the meantime??

Roy.

Semi-sarcastic. I'd entertain it.

Now, THIS is where it will be nice to have Pegula bucks. They can throw all kinds of money at whatever guy they want.

I expect Patrick to be the interim guy. I do not want him full time though.

I'm all aboard the Dallas Eakins train.

hope that's the way we go. Patrick promoted now to interim, and until next season to find a permanent (but not ruff-permanent)

As long as it isn't a retread or a former Sabres player, I'm happy. They need a bold change.

I'd be fine with Roy. He's got fire

edit: Eakins too. Hell, it doesn't even matter at this point. John Scott dresses up nice, make him the bench boss for all I care. Just get rid of Ruff

Jon Cooper should also get some consideration. Both he and Eakins are popular "what ifs" for us when we want AV fired. Both have impressive records with not the best rosters. Hopefully this sets Buffalo back on track. Quite a shocker though.

I'd be happy if we got Eakins.

I'd be OVERJOYED if we got Jon Cooper(currently coaching Syracuse in the AHL). He's won wherever he's gone(in the USHL, the AHL, high school and Tier 3 in the US), is relatively young, and knows how to keep a team on an even keel.

Not saying he's the best guy out there. But I've always liked Paul Maurice.
