The Buffalo Sabres have to rearrange things.
Kevin Adams has to do something because this team isn’t playing hockey. As I see it one of two things have to happen, either fire Krueger or trade Eichel.
I don’t think the coach has the respect of his players. Granted there’s injuries to our goaltending, defense and Eichel but they’re professionals, whoever fills those spots temporarily have to step up and answer the call. We have nobody doing that.
So, maybe the team doesn’t like the treatment of skinner, but $9mil you gotta produce no ifs and or butts.
When a team plays as like they’re not interested, it’s the coach. Fire Krueger, get a high profile coach like Bruce Bodreaux and see how the team responds, if it’s the same, trade Eichel, after all he wears the “c” and we all know wear the “c” in Buffalo eventually means your being traded at some point.
That seems to be the best option as we hand out bank based on past performance and it bites us in the azz. Cody Hodgeson, Ville Leino, Kyle Okposo, Jeff Skinner to name a few.
We need and deserve people who know how to run and build a team, until then it’ll always be the same. Outside looking in.
