Okay. Whatever.

Don't know anything about him except that he got fired along with the rest of Randy Carlyle's staff in Anaheim.

How long will it be before Lou acquires one of his sons?

He was a tremendous goal scorer in the NHL, especially in Buffalo.

One of the Sabres' best in the 80s. He scored a big playoff goal IIRC for the Leafs but his best years were in Buffalo. Was a good coach for Sudbury.

Haha I know! I was just being a goofball.

I never expected him to get the job, though he was a Lemaire buddy like Shaw and Barr. He also never coached with Lemaire either like those two did.

I'm relived it isn't Sarge.

The assistant coaching spot is as relevant as John Maclean

Disagree. Good assistant coaches have had noticeable impacts.

Don't know much about his coaching record, but I'm happy someone is in the position now.

I don't think so. What the coach says as far as tactics is the way it goes and assistant coaches just work with what the coach wants.

I think you're correct, but I also think it's almost impossible for us, as fans, to tell when assistant coaches are making that good impact.

So the million dollar question. It probably doesn't matter (It didn't with Shaw) but how was Anaheim's PP when he was there? I know they had better offensive talent than us, so it was probably better anyway.

What kind of coach is he? I mean obviously we're gonna play our hard forechecking system, but what specialties does he bring to the table?
