Rumor: About Botterill’s Future Being in Doubt

I've seen a few Minnesota games in person this season, and IMO Ryan Johnson is, at best, another Henri Jokiharju.   

Pretty sure that is what this regime likes and what they were going for when they made the pick.

So...if the season is over, the Sabres will have put up 68 pts in 69 games, which projects to 80.8 pts over 82 games.

That's an improvement of either 2 or 3 pts over GMTM's final season.

Not good enough IMHO to bring back JB, but I wouldn't be stunned if TP decides to keep him on.

I've seen enough.  Move on.

And that's only because the postponement allows them to skip out on their annual March swoon.

I agree that the math doesn't favor a retention of Botterill.  But this thing is a lot worse than math! 

The man is pretty much clueless and easily a bottom 3 to 5 GM in the league (and that's being fair).  

If the intent is to always improve and get better, Pegula has to get a new GM.

I agree he may well NOT do that.

IMHO, "Fair" is far too generous.

Really expected them to go 8-6 down the stretch with an outside possibility of 10-4.  Getting Ullmark back would've made them competitive nearly every night he'd start.
