Too bad.

I was wondering last night who would be fired first, Ruff or Torts. Shame it had to be Ruff.

15 1/2 years as an NHL head coach is like a 100 years in other professions. Such a shame up in Buffalo.

Stunned.

My girlfriend who is just getting into hockey said his job was in danger a couple weeks ago. I basically said he was safe. :pop:

I can't imagine Ruff will be out of work for line. The guy is a very good coach who has had some mediocre teams to work with in Buffalo.

I thought his best chance was '05-06. This was a fun series to watch: http://espn.go.com/nhl/team/stats/_/nam ... alo-sabres vs. http://espn.go.com/nhl/team/stats/_/nam ... hurricanes

Unfortunate, but I think necessary. In the end, it's about results and after so long, can't fire all the players.

Perhaps a shake up is necessary. He's one of my favorite coaches in the league. Straight up guy and has never talked much ****.

I'm certain he'll find another gig.

Regier needs to get Vanek and Miller some help. I mean, the Sabres are playing Leopold and Ehrhoff as their top 2 defensemen. No knock on those guys, but they're playing above their heads. And Mike Weber is playing 18 minutes a night...

Yeah, he makes the prospect of firing your coach a lot more attractive....
