Lindy will always be a part of the Sabres history, from playing to coaching. I wish him the best and while I know he will get snapped up and do well, I hope its in the west as I know he'll be a thorn in our side.
Had to be done, but still sad.
Thank you coach Ruff for everything you have done for this team, keeping them above water under the hard financial time, when nobody would have blamed you for walking away, when this team was run on a budget, when Drury and Briere walked.......every coach has a shelf life, and yours finally expired. Good luck to you in all your future endevors.
There was a period of time where he was viewed as one of the better coaches in the league. His resume is pretty decent, and you can't say he was a bad guy off of the ice. He was a FIXTURE of the City, the team, and really a representation of our sports City for decades.
Wishing him luck in his future endeavors.
I agree. Its been "about time" for a while, but I kind have mixed feelings about it. They should have let him go some time during off season, rather than keeping him on board where it'd come to this. Kind of disrespectful toward him for all the years he's put in with the Sabres organization.
