Lindy Ruff has been relieved of his duties as head coach of the Buffalo Sabres.

The Sabres have struggled to a record of 6-10-1 this season and sit in 13th place in the Eastern Conference.

Ruff was in his 15th season with the Sabres and won the Jack Adams Award as NHL Coach of the Year in 2005-06.

huh, was just reading the Puck Daddy article saying this was inevitable. Guess that makes them right.

But yeah, they were mediocre for far, far too long and this had to happen.

The Sabres defensive effort was screaming of quitting on their coach. Pagnola (or whatever) probably demanded action.

Kassian.... Taylor Pyatt 3.0

Lies. He's more of a Steve Bernier. Hopefully his talent level goes up so he can become like a Taylor Pyatt.
