I’m not surprised, but I am. The organization had to do something, what with the Sabres god-awful performance this season and all (I won’t even touch the last few seasons), but it’s still hard to picture anyone else behind the Sabres bench.
Nonetheless, it’s done. Lindy Ruff’s gone. Which means the question on everyone’s mind is: Who is the next Buffalo Sabres head coach?
Allow me to offer my suggestions.
He's already between the benches, so why not just move him over a little bit?
I mean, he's out of a job.
The Elmwood Bubble Man
Assistant Coach: The Lady In White, also of Elmwood Avenue fame.
A.k.a., the last guy cut from 1980's Team USA (i.e., the 'Miracle' team).
He's probably the NHL mascot with the most attitude. You've gotta admire that. Plus, how funny would it be to watch him interact with the players and refs?
...Although he may only last a few years.
Emilio Estevez isn't doing anything, right?
Would that make the Sabres Manti Te'o?
While we're talking about fictional people, why not?
As long as the Sabres don't win the Cup while Obama's in office, it's all good.
Actually, on second thought...
Hey, the Bills did it!
