Lindy's hubris has led to this humbling exit. He shoud have realized, along with Regier that, that he was not able to handle the job anymore--at least here. Then a classier exit from coaching would have been orchestrated. Please hire a coach with NHL experience and give him a short term contract with a chqance to prove himself. Moving someone used to dealing with teenagers who have no clout and need the coach to get ice time to get drafted to a coaching position with adults who have guaranteed contracts is risky....

he was likely told "if you don't fire ruff I'll fire him, and then I'll fire you."

Seconds before he noted that he was talking about it with multiple people. This sounds very much like decision by committee, with Regier having the final say.

reporterchris Jason Pominville says the #sabres were informed of Lindy Ruff's firing when he addressed them on the bus prior to departing for Toronto.

Told you guys this was a new Darcy. The players he's drafting aren't Ruff guys, this was coming. Jame called it.

Wow Regier went into the season banking on the F-E-S line. I'm shocked he could be that stupid. Pretty sure myself, joshjull, chainshot among others said how that could end up.

I think Regier's loyalty shifted quite a bit here with the last extension...

If this was his sole decision, good on him for stepping up. He seems to be pointing to clear dissatisfaction with Lindy.

But I still see some tears coming, they're building up!

Didn't he also say that after trading LaFontaine; Hasek; Peca; and letting Briere walk - moves that were all later reported as coming from above him?
