IT'S GONNA BE HUGE BUFFALO, HUUUUUUUUUUUUGE!!

I lived in WNY for about 6 years, and I certainly do not miss that guy's mug on my TV and on most city buses in Buffalo!

Well, I gotta imagine that Ruff has coached his last with Buffalo.

How's that Leino deal looking now?

Indeed. All things considering for them this season not a bad job tbh.

This season is becoming a tragicomedy for the Wings. One point, we were talking about #1 in the West and now look at us.

Agreed. The Sabres are my 'secondary team' so-to-speak - obviously they had a tough season with a lot of setbacks. I was really hoping to see them pull it out, but even if they had made the playoffs they likely would have been completely exhausted by the time they got there.

Miller hasn't been the same since his hit by Luicic.

Started playing better and better when the games mattered the most. Sucked in the beginning of the season. Too bad there weren't enough players who cared like he did.
Detroit Red Wings & Tampereen Ilves forever!

Yea, 21 straight playoff appearances and 4 cups in the last 15 years.

Look at how much of a tragicomedy we have become.

He didn't say the Wings have become a tragicomedy. He said, "This season is becoming a tragicomedy for the Wings."

Keep up the good work.

That is partially true... after the Lucic hit, Miller did not play well until around the All Star break. After that, he was phenomenal until the last handful of games. He didn't get much rest and looked worn into the ground. But I agree with the sentiment that the Lucic hit derailed their entire season.

I have seen a few tweets/opinions from media members that Roy is saying this because he's pretty sure he won't be back. The Sabres need to move him to move forward in my opinion. While I think Ruff is a good coach, this season has shown me that he just isn't effective for this team anymore.

Well, I guess the combined 30 years of failure that those two have combined for in the organization just isn't enough.

With their new owner opening the pockets I think there will be huge changes in Buffalo. If we don't get Parise would you like Holland going after him in the offseason?
