Edmonton turned things around because of Peter Chiarelli and Todd McLellan as well as McDavid.  Chiarelli and McLellan were both proven winners, something Buffalo never hires. 

 

Bylsma did win the cup and was the Olympic coach which is pretty good credentials.

 

Really surprised by Murray though. the Nightcap guys are saying that TMNGM was berating officials in the hall way for all to hear and was all around to lose with his lips.

Am I the only one not even a little surprised by Murray? What am I missing? He tore it all down, had a bunch of assets and squandered the majority of them. His job was pretty easy.

his job was to tear it down and the trades were supposed to bring faster results. they should have just stuck with the long plan and develop the assets

Firing Bylsma makes perfect sense and that was overdue.

 

Firing GMTM is confusing and  makes no sense at all.  He should have been given 1 more off-season to finish his work.

 

This is another demerit on the Pegulas, who have now amply demonstrated they are beyond clueless when it comes to pro sports ownership.

That was established long ago when they hired Rex.

Whaley is a far far better GM than Murray.  In addition, Whaley has been restricted by Rex in many ways that Pegula can easily see.  Murray had free reign and completely botched everything while talking down to everyone on the planet.

It's hard to get excited about being CLOSE to 8th place in a conference at one point in the season in a 30 team league -- maybe just me as a non hockey guy

I didn't mean they were awesome. Just that they got close enough to contend but instead went to pieces.


Per Kevin Sylvester

"Can't see Terry Pegula holding a press conference tomorrow to just take questions. Wouldn't surprise me if he named a hockey president."

To channel JW... HMMMMMMM
