Is there still a future with the Sabres for Lindy?

I'm not suggesting anything here, I'm just curious as to what people think. The man played for the team for a long time and then came back to coach for a long time. He is obviously a big part of the Sabres family. Do you see any way that Lindy could come back for a third stint of service? Is there a place for him in the staff? And is that something you'd want?

Maybe at some point in some capacity, but I think right now Lindy wants a head coaching job.

Maybe broadcasting? I think Lindy wants to coach.

If there's a role for him in the organization that's not head coach or GM I urge the Sabres to allow him to fill it.

Let time pass. A lot of time pass. I think at least 7-8 years pass, Lindy could come back into the fold that has nothing to do with player drafting, development, or scouting. Be part of the Broadcast team, or Sabres foundation or similar would be fine.

He's said in the past that he'd be interested in going to the front office as a GM after he finished coaching.

...but the young Hecht's would be offset by all the old Rivet's.

Not to mention only 1 G on the roster. "Backup? what's a backup?"

President of hockey operations sounds like a Lindy title... I could see that happening

We need to let him go for awhile.

I'd like to see where this organization can go without his influence.

I would of been OK, happy even if instead of being fired Darcy was, and he was named GM and an interim coach were named. But now, before he can come back here he'll have to go have great success someplace else.


It's just the way it is.

I don't want the guy giving Jochen Hecht 15+ minutes a night making personnel decisions, I'm glad this had 0 chance of happening

Eh.

Glad Lindy's gone.
  • I didn't like the callus way he apparently dealt with players.
  • I thought he mismanaged, among others, Luke Adam and killed the guy's confidence.
  • I didn't like who he put on the ice at critical times.
  • I didn't like the way he managed goaltenders.
  • I really didn't like the way he played favorites. His continuing to allow Rivet to play because he himself "knew what it was like to be scratched as captain" was as ridiculous and unprofessional as Darcy proclaiming that as long as he's GM, Lindy will be the coach. (of course that was as long as the decision was left to Darcy and Darcy alone).

Enough Lindy. He had more opportunities to win a championship than a pro coach is EVER given. Let's all think about that the next time we get all misty-eyed reminiscing.

Not any time soon as he'll continue head coaching for a while. It's not in either side's interest or desire to have Lindy back with the organization in the short/mid term.

One day, probably some alumni capacity. Right now, I suspect he's looking at the possibly job openings he could be a good fit for and as LeBrun mentioned, perhaps another gig as an assistant with Team Canada at the Olympics.
