(Fired) Lindy Ruff done in Buffalo

12 posts in this topic

Just got a text from the score saying he's been fired.

From NHL.com

The Buffalo Sabres have relieved Lindy Ruff of his coaching duties, the team announced Wednesday afternoon.

A 2-1 loss to the Winnipeg Jets at the First Niagra Center on Tuesday night left the Sabres with a 6-10-1 record this season. Buffalo's 13 points are the fewest in the Northeast Division and tied for the third-fewest in the Eastern Conference.

Ruff, who played most of his NHL career for the Sabres, began coaching the team in 1997-98 and was the longest-tenured coach in the League. He led the Sabres to the 1999 Stanley Cup Final and had a career regular-season record of 562-452-84 along with 78 ties.

Ruff was also the second-longest tenured coach in North American pro sports next to Gregg Popovich of the San Antonio Spurs.

There is no immediate word on Ruff's replacement

More to follow.

I like how you rushed on to CDC to post this just to be first. Why not leave it to someone who actually will make a decent thread?

Not really a surprise - it was eventual, as long as a team does bad, any coach can get fired.

Nashville NEEDS to do better than the 2nd round or else Barry Trotz could get the yank too.

Ruff is a pretty good coach - he'll find work right away.

Trotz is on the hot seat? Unless Nashville tanks a season or 3, i dont see him going anywhere. He keeps that team competitive year after year even with all the BS he has to endure from their financial predicament.

13 years for Lindy Ruff and he was doing fine.

Then Cody Hodgson got traded to Buffalo.

Cody Hodgson a coaches worst nightmare.
