You would have thought if Reghr was staying that Ruff would have been moved up somewhere in the Sabres org.

Someone mentioned whether AV would be safe if this year's team did not go deep in CUP play? AV - Bowness - Brown are the main coaches. What does coaching tell Gillis they need for a CUP winning team? Internal politics is a reality in any org. To me it appears that Gillis and AV are the leaders as their positions suggest. I don't see enough of Gillman to get a feeling. We should remember that Gillis has spent a lot of money broadening Van's management team and AV's opinion might not carry as much weight as it might have 3 years ago.

In any event Gillis does have to judge whether current coaching has the capacity to carry this roster to a CUP win. The clock never stops ticking on the Twins longevity. Their era of being the go to guys up front might only have another 2 seasons left.
WHile it is very true, AV's continual refrain, "It's a process", comes off as irritating and somewhat an excuse. This comment is probably very unfair.
