He was asked to.

He keeps saying "we" when talking about the Sabres, the team. Must be extremely hard for him to think any other way.

As for the "we" thing, he can say "we" all he wants. He'll ALWAYS be a Sabre in my eyes. I don't care what he does next.

Lindy...the feels

Lindy is super classy for doing this. He could have simply sat in his house and waited for GMs to line up and make his offers. he doesn't owe the Buffalo media anything.

- thanks to Darcy, good friend, great hockey man, believed in me during times when many would've axed coach

- thanks to his staff, trainers, Rip, behind Rip "I'm second to wanting to bring big Silver to the city"

- to the players, thanks, past current etc., players played for him.

- players here now are a united group, in a place where they're supporting each other, it's hard, but they're working at it. Leadership from Jason, Ryan, Thomas down, he feels their pain (LOL)

Figures someone in the media would try and torpedo the players for a quote.

Classy move by Lindy to deflect that.

- no talks of advisory role

- wants to continue coaching, MISSES IT ALREADY

- has to keep going, loves the game...he's going to coach again

- Darcy came to his home, when he saw him Lindy said "I know...don't apologize, you've been my biggest backer"

- Sensed it after WPG, saw apprehension

- step back against WPG was a kick in gut for him...

- then asked DR to go see team, thank players, give them the news

- bus was dead silent

- when asked: "team didn't let me down, they gave me all...communication, input from them to coaches was awesome"....I don't get that one...

- watched one period of last night's game, found it incredibly strange and had to turn it off
