Who is replacing Botterill? No, really ...

Recommended Posts

After you get past saying you just want JB fired. After you get past saying “I don’t know, anyone would be better”. After you get past the understandable frustration of wanting him fired ...

What realistic, logical solution would you recommend to the Pegulas?  I know some will make jokes and rage against JB and/or Pegulas .... so after you get it out of your system, can you name some GM candidates that are semi realistic choices? It would be interesting what real possibilities you think are out there. If anyone can actually supply names.

I personally don’t want a GM where the game has passed them by and are a retread who’s peak was in 1985. I also don’t want a GM with little to no experience as a GM. But that’s just me.
Sabres fans ... Names Names! I want names! 👍🏼

You're probably right.  Every time I watch the Sabres, I scream, "Jesus Christ, WTF was that?"

I think this team is causing the good people on this board to lose their minds.

If you stare into the abyss long enough it starts to stare back.

Nope the definition of sanity is doing the same thing over and over, and expecting the same result.  Therefore, I am very sane.

It certainly isn't the definition of insanity

(Def) the state of being seriously mentally ill; madness.

Wouldn't mind Shero, but the way the devils are going is his work and I'd rather have botteril.

No, thanks. Fans are under no obligation, and have limited ability anyway, to offer a replacement name. Unless your point is literally that there's no one better than Botterill and you're trying to play gotcha. We went through that nonsense when Ruff's keister was on the hot plate.

Um no .... it’s just a fun/interesting exercise to see if anyone has a good handle on who is out there. Realistically....

You can avoid the topic if you don’t know any names.  No worries. I don’t know many either. I don’t follow too many GMs or their assistants. I was genuinely curious as to who is out there. No gotcha games. Don’t assume I have a point I didn’t type please. I typed what I meant.... 

so far Dudley, Shero, and Bergevin... no other names?

I hate Botteril so much that I would rather have Peter Chiarelli

Is the bearded one still available?  Elevate RK to GM if there is truth to people saying he's a better fit in upper management and bring the bearded one in as coach.

I'll say it...I miss Lindy and Darcy. At least they worked well together and had such passion. Their teams had passion (remember those great brawls with Ottawa, Philly Boston etc). Their teams looked like they actually cared. They played with something long missing here; heart.

Ideally, I’d want someone who would build on what’s here right now, rather than tearing it down, because we aren’t a total wasteland and me and Jack can’t handle a repeat of the past 6 years.

***

Totally in contradiction with that, but presented because it is fun:

Is there a guy out there with ties to Mike Babcock? Because you gotta know Babcock would love to do to the Leafs what Punch did. It would be more of an NFL style structure where he’d be the coach and work in tandem with his Beane. 

Ralph and Babs have worked together. Ralph could be the touchy feeling hockey president at the top of the chain.

How about Ron Hextall?

(Of course Terry’s ego probably couldn’t handle Babs after he already ***** him over, but, like I said, it’s a fun idea).
