After 170 head coaching changes elsewhere around the league, Darcy Regier (or whoever) finally decided they needed someone else to blame things on. Lindy Ruff is Buffalo Sabres coach no more.
10: They Sabres were winning to many games to have the best possible shot at drafting Seth Jones.
9: Darcy Regier promised Terry Pegula he could easily have a draft as successful a the Sabres 2000 edition.
8: Ruff never told Regier how bad Myers was before the Sabres wrote his current contract.
7: After having yet more misfit toys like John Scott, Steve Ott and Patrick Kaleta dropped on his roster Lindy Ruff used his safeword.
6: Super star defenseman Adam Pardy said he could no longer play on a team coached by Ruff and management had to make a decision.
5: The New York media like John Tortorella’s press conferences better.
4: After careful consultation with Pierre Gauthier it was decided that anyone who failed to say “not it” at the staff meeting would be fired.
3: Terry Pegula finally realized all the whining at the Sabres press conferences wasn’t caused by press audio equipment.
2: It was always in managements plan to fire Ruff when his name rusted off the sign over his parking space.
1: Like George McPhee Regier is dead certain he can keep his boss from noticing how bad at his job he is by firing coaches.
