So what exactly does Terry mean when he says, something has to change?

Was it a reference to Phil or Jason, or was it in reference to the roster?

I think a GM should get one coach fire. 

Ordinarily I would agree with you, but Botteril has been such a disaster with his personnel moves that the team has regressed from a talent perspective.

We are basically where we ended last season. A horrible team with goaltending issues, poor defense and too little scoring up front. This season has been a total waste.

This might be why you'd do it. OTOH letting him coach out the string lets him maintain a bit of dignity.

 I would love it if Phil pulled a Herb Brooks and made them skate until they puke after the next practice.  

I am more pissed at the players than at Phil. 

Something is wrong.

This level of ineptitude for 4 months now is unprecedented and unacceptable.  No way should they have only won 14 since November that is an abomination.

he's just a fan that happened to earn a few billion dollars and bought his favorite teams. Think of all the stupid fans you sat next to at Bills or Sabres games over the years. He could have easily been one of them.

I think a lot will depend on what the expectations were.

They didn't for Rex

Rex requested to leave when Tyrod was benched for EJ in the last week so the Bills wouldn't have to be on the hook for $27M guaranteed for injury. That decision wasn't his, and he asked if he and his brother could be dismissed immediately.

I think the only way Botteril survives this season is if in fact he didn’t hire Housley. If Pegula insisted on Housley than Botteril is safe. Otherwise he should be gone with Housley. No quality experienced coach will want to come to this quagmire. 

100% agree

Terry is oblivious.  

Murray and Bylsma  get canned for “communication”.   Bots and Phil get props for “communication”.    

The product on ice remains putrid.

I think we need to bring back Ron Ralston

We're still playing his defensive system, so might as well.

We have not won in regulation since February 23.  Let that sink in a minute.  It’s March 26.  How do people not lose their jobs?  This is going into unprecedented territory now.

Is there a Sabre not finishing this season currently on a production slide? Guess it's difficult when no one is scoring.

Nylander, Dahlin, think that's about it.

It's doubtful they'll have back to back regulation wins in any month but October. LIkely no back to back wins at all for final 4 months of year.

Yup.  It’s mind blowing when you look at the stats and facts.  The entire FO needs to be relived immediately.  That is beyond comprehension.

He said if you're going to fire me , fire me now. - I'm not sure  'requested to leave' is the right way to phrase it, but i really don't care. He would rather have not been fired.
