Lindy Ruff officially hired as Sabres HC


Recommended Posts

Who is the rest of the staff? Because Ellis and Wilford aren’t cutting it!

Can we get a James Patrick or Jay McKee for the D corps and a PP specialist on the staff as well please.

A younger coach who could succeed Ruff in a few years. I know everyone loves Peca. Someone like him as an associate HC (a promotion in title so he could leave the NYR) or someone of that ilk.

I think Adams wants Appert to remain with Rochester.

I really really hope Lindy is the guy to get this club back in the playoffs. I feel a bit apprehensive at this signing. My personal preference would have been Gallant or Berube but I did love Lindy once. I am afraid if this fails yet again, it will tarnish his history as Sabres coach and the club goes another season of no playoffs. I wish Coach Lindy all the best this upcoming season. Really hoping for "the old Lindy magic"! For all I know, maybe Gallant and Berube's agents already declined that their clients would come to Buffalo and I don't think Brind' Amour is leaving Carolina. God bless you Lindy- here's hoping for the best!!

I'm actually fine with this! A players coach who does not take any BS! He also knows how to not only win but gets the most out of his players. Now as others have stated, getting the right staff will be vital. I believe that with the talent assembled, this team is geared for an open, offensive game.

We also need to pick the right Captain, or bring one in.

Here are what I feel should be the main focus regarding Lindy's supporting cast of coaches:

PP Specialist
Faceoff Specialist
PK Specialist
