not sure what you guys do up there in Toronto, but we don't use ass coaches over here. Not that there's anything wrong with it.

"Today the Sabres organization is proud to reward Lindy Ruff to a 8 year 45 million dollar contract with 38 million in the first year. We've felt he's earned it, and hasn't missed one game to injury this season. Lindy isn't going anywhere"

Any chance this is Penn State related? The guy is a huge booster, maybe he is using his platform to talk about Paterno or something.

If they do fire Darcy Regier, I fully expect them to hire Rick Dudley as he lives in Buffalo and had a huge part in both the Lightning Cup winning team and the Hawks.

I have it on good authority that the "major" announcement will be that free Rohypnol (roofies) will now be made available to Sabres fans who purchase tix to the Tailgate Tent Parties! Sabres fans know they're going to wake up the morning after a game feeling ill and violated, and the organization wants to help by wiping the memory of what actually happened during the game clean from your memory with the aid of modern pharmacology. Still just $55 for a game ticket and a pass to the tent party (roofie included). Operators are standing by.

Rohypnol will be available at all concession stands between intermissions.

Pegula announces he regrets not making free cocoa at the fireplace in the Sabres lockerroom available to Local fans during this long road trip. Oversight like that won't happen next year.

If there is any type of press release or announcement; I expect it to be about the ECHL purchase.

I'd assume that if there is indeed an announcement it would be in the form of a press release and not a media conference. If the team calls a media/press conference and it ends up being about the purchase of an ECHL franchise/arena you know what is going to hit the fan with some people.

If Pegula's making a huge announcement I doubt it has anything to do with an ECHL team. When I see huge I think of something like a coach or GM being fired, or trades being made. With how things are going I don't think a huge announcment would be that he bought an ECHL team.

He might still be buying one I just don't see how that would be anywhere near a huge announcement.

I hope that he would do it verbatim, referring to himself in the third person.

This is going to turn out like Michael Scott's big surprise.

Still, if I were the whiteboard, I'd be nervous.

Since we're firing everyone else in the organization, fire the source!

If it is today, he will not be replacing Ruff since they have a game tonight. I would not expect them to change GM's in mid season. Maybe he is making a huge donation to UB to start a hockey program.

Terry just saved a bunch of money by switching to Geico, is firing Sabretooth, and sticking to the prehistoric mascot theme is replacing him with the Caveman?

I feel like Wgr would have said he's going on-air at 12 by now if some announcement were being made.

Did Pegula say there was a huge announcement or did that blogger just say there was? The blogger could have heard there was an announcement and easily added Huge in front of it. Everything is all speculation at this point, but I find it hard to believe there is a massive announcement regarding the Sabres front office until one is actually released from the team.

I'd be happy if the announcement was that they were making more of those chicken parm sandwiches, and delivering them to my office daily.
