Rumor: About Botterill’s Future Being in Doubt

Recommended Posts

Does he have any real sources?

 

He claims it’s in discussions with the ‘higher ups’, but only the owners are higher than Botterill...

I really, really doubt Terry fires JBOT after this season.

I'll listen later, but does it sound like he's got sources, or is he just repeating press box speculations?

Still think it will come down to the way we finish: 90 points he's safe, 80 he's gone.

Of course, he's going to finish with 86, so....

Speculation.

He doesn’t even say that he has “been told.......”.  He basically just says “ownership is going to discuss it, there could be a change made”.  It was prompted by someone asking him “do you think.......?”.

not happenin'... my source.

So, if it is not happening, is there word of an actual plan to actually bring in a center to help kick start our 9 million dollar boy Skinner and a right wing to either push Reinhart down a line or put with aforementioned center and Skinner?

Thank you. All I wanted to know pi.

Edit: oh, and you can let your source know, if you choose to, that myself and my family will be at 20 games minimum next season, 200 level, if they do. And we will begin to buy merchandise again.

I don't know people, maybe all Botterill needs is better pro scouting department?

I've questioned our scouting for ages, but he did change a lot of them didn't he? 

I sometimes wonder why Don Luce works in Toronto and not Buffalo (among others). 

As for JBot, despite "sources" I suspect nothing is written in stone yet. If we somehow make the playoffs he won't be fired, we will be told see, "trust in the process."  If we crash and burn down the stretch things might be different. The pace of season ticket sales might be the great decider.

Luce did work for Buffalo but was fired....he's a good personnel guy

Double yawn ...

When the Pegulas see all the STH's dropping their plans I bet that won't be their reaction. I think that's what's going to lead to Botts getting his well earned sacking.

The STH’s aren’t going to (to any large degree) drop their plans. Fantasy land to think they will. Good grief.... 

 

I bet 10-15% do, and those 10-15% will quickly and gladly get snatched up by new STHers.

I'm waiting in the shadows 🙂 .

Hey, I'm a mystacist, what can I say, other than "Yes please, may I have another."

Brawndo, I'd change Rumor to Opinion. It's not really a rumor of anything.

According to many here, any words coming out of anyone's pie hole count as a rumor so we get thread of 47 aholes coveting every other teams best young cost controlled players, while the Sabres are only giving up their worst assets.

I hear there’s talk of Pastrnak for Botterill.

I can't bear the thought of having some non Italian euro with the nickname Pasta on my team

The fantasy land is the idea that there are thousands of people waiting to buy ST's for this team. Unless you are blind you can see the thousands of empty seats at most games.

And 10-15% is a large degree.
