I expect he'll add someone with HC experience as an assistant which should help assuage some of those concerns.

I wonder if Antipin knows how good today was for him and the way he wants to play

Sabres.com usually has the pressers. I usually listen in on the WGR smartphone app.

Excited to see how he works with the talent on the back end. Also, please let this mean the end of Gorges-Risto forever.

Congrats to him. Hopefully he lives up to the hype, though honestly just being an average coach would already be a huge improvement over what we've had since Ruff was let go.

I'll set the over/under at 4 questions into the presser that he gets asked about royal blue jerseys.

God isn't this true.

He could be pretty bad and still beat out the last 3.

Well Phil won't forget the day he became a NHL head coach now.

It's kinda cool how we plucked two key members from the Stanley Cup Champions and Finalists. One of the teams was built from the back end and the other was built upfront.

He was on Instigators today. Said he thought he'd be a good hire.

The Sabres Facebook account streams pressers too. They run better for me than the feeds on the NHL site.
