One Sabres player on Nolan's comments after the first period: "Ted came in and told us ‘You guys are garbage.’ "

I guess if the shoe fits... But still kinda harsh.

Nolan was always about "tough love"

I don't really see the love in that comment.

People keep asking me today "So you have a new boss?" No, I'm still with my wife.

This was the first thing that came to mind when reading this...

 

 

Buffalo is turning into the new Calgary, need to rebuild, get value where value can be had and start fresh in a new direction.

From Buffalo News:

 

The Buffalo Sabres hockey department grew by two people.

And they’re a pair of pretty impressive hires.

While it had been reported that Tim Murray would be named the team’s new general manager, the organization also hired Craig Patrick as a special assistant and adviser to the hockey department.

...

 

 

After all this time...?

so they now have:

 

Ted Black > LaFontaine > Patrick > Murray > Dineen ? certainly not a bad stuff but I'm a bit shocked LaFontaine couldn't find a "better" GM with a bit more resumee.

I believe Murray is a draft/player development type guy. Exactly what they need for a rebuild. Ottawa never really shyed away from trades either, so he'll probably also be aggressive in moving the pieces they still have left. He was quoted as saying something like anyone on this team can be traded right now.

I don't why they hired Patrick. Play management maybe?

From NHL:

 

New Buffalo Sabres general manager Tim Murray said Friday that coach Ted Nolan will have the interim tag removed from his title soon.

 

How soon is now?

Don't want to screw up the "season ticket renewal" season.

Again!!


This might be getting a little heated. Just know I don't hate any of you guys.

 

That doesn't mean that I respect ideas & opinions. Some ideas & opinions are ridiculous.

 

In fact, if you confront my ideas & opinions, that will lead to a discussion. (We're on a discussion board after all. Don't forget that!)

Nolan's known as a "player's coach."  He's certainly stabilized the team since his arrival. If he surrounds himself with the right assistant coaches, he can at least get a re-building team back on track to winning before he's replaced with the guy that gets them to championship contention. ...and with it's current situation, that could be a while. 

 

So good for Teddy Nolan.

Imma let you finish, and your cap numbers are all good and all that, but imma let Kenny figure it out. Kenny's cap numbers were the best cap numbers this year.
