If I wasn't such a lazy piece of crap, I'd be a junior in college right now.

It was overdue

But in the end it was time.

All the hate aside, Thanks to Lindy!

Given the way today has gone in the Sabresverse, he probably hasn't heard yet.

I saw a tweet about this too...

What's his deal? Are there better prospects out there?

Not much ill will towards Ruff from me anymore. He was and is a great coach, just not for this team. He WILL catch on elsewhere and I think he will have a similar level of success.

Please don't make James Patrick interim head coach.... He is just as bad.

Patrick Roy please !

Holy smegging moly. I wish him the best and hope he has future success (not in contention with the sabres). I wish he could have lifted a cup with Buffalo.

Still the question remains who are we going to replace him with?

They don't really have much choice, at least for a couple weeks. Nobody's going to be available to come in right away, especially if they have to assemble an entirely new staff.

Thank you Lindy, despite some of your teams performances I always thought you were a stand up guy.

My Jaw hit the floor while driving. I was utterly shocked, not because I didn't see it coming, but because THEY ACTUALLY DID IT

Thank God. The right decision was made, finally.

Now bring in Jon Cooper or Dallas Eakins.

As the solo ruff supporter on the boards, this totally sucks. A combination of inexperience at center and too many offensive defenseman were my excuse for hanging on to a bad season. The fans have been impatient since the organization went down with a pr sabotaging nightmare
