Ted Black interview this morning

Did anyone listen? I heard a few bits and pieces; hoping to pull a link at some point today so I can hear the full thing.

What I did hear:

-They are sticking with Darcy, they believe he has done enough in the 2 years they have been there for him to do this rebuild. Won't judge him on the past; just what he has done since they arrived.

-After next years draft, they will have 6 - 1st rounders and 8 - 2nd rounders in 4 years since they took over the franchise. They feel that is how you build a winning culture.

-They went for a cup in 3 years, and drastically fell short so now its time to build from the ground.

-Didn't want to comment on Leopold's "Grim Reaper" comment. Said he didn't know what it meant since he obviously wasn't talking about the owner or himself.

The thing I heard that I have the most problem with-

-He said they didn't have a solid pipeline of prospects when he got there and that's why they are where they are now. Well if that's the case, then why is Darcy still here? Its his fault they didn't have a solid pipeline of prospects.

Anyone else hear more they would like to add?

I'm afraid Ted is giving Darcy a pass on Brad Boyes and Ville unless Terry directed those? I want Darcy gone at season's end.
It scares me that he is going to keep RR as coach going forward because he loves his calm demeanor.
We need to move on from Darcy and I hope this is just Ted spinning the company line until the axe falls.

An aside about Leo's comment. I think that mood is driven from Miller personally and with him gone in the offseason and fresh faces and a coach we can get over that crap too. But if Darcy stays all bets are off.

What was wrong with the Boyes acquisition? He helped us into the playoffs two years ago.

Regier is going nowhere. The Pominville trade signified that.

I'm fine with it.

This is why Regier is never getting fired.

Leo's comments? ... The one where he said the locker room was like a morgue or something along those lines?...

How can you attribute that to Miller? They freakin' suck...of course the locker room isn't going to be anything great to be in... They all contribute to that type of environment.

Coaches are different from GM's. GM's always last longer.

Guess all we can do is see how this all pans out. So many things to say but what's the point? Not worth it.

That wasn't me. I mis-formatted the quote of the poster I quoted.

GM's and coaches are not the same. Its probably going to take Pegula seeing how his new core develops. Rebuilding process actually started a couple years ago IMO.

What? Regier said he is keeping Rolston long term, even after this season?

No. He didn't. Mountain out of molehill syndrome.

That somehow equates to Regier never being fired?

The point is that in Ruff's firing, Pegula has clearly demonstrated that he will fire (or allow to be fired) people in the hockey department, so pointing to that quote and saying "See? He's not going to can anyone!" is silly.

Well, in the next 3-4 years I dont see it. New coach will probably be a big splash because of the Pegula factor. The Sabres are pretty loaded with prospects, and have numerous picks to just keep adding to it. They should have a top 5 pick this year that will allow them to add an elite player as well.

I just dont see how Darcy gets fired.

I took it as...he's going to be allowed to do this rebuild...so the hopes of some of Darcy being canned after the season is not going to come to fruition... I didn't take it literally that he would NEVER be fired.

I actually think firing Ruff is further proof Regier isn't getting fired. If you didn't like Regier, why wouldn't you fire both at the same time?

I thought they were a packaged deal. We found out they are not.

So now, does anyone think that this may increase/decrease the chance of Patrick Roy as the next coach?
