Who would it apply to if not "fired" coaches and GMs?

 team personnel I guess.

This rule they created shouldn't apply to coaches who were fired and the fact they don't have language to that affect,  :wallbash:

 

They have purchased the rights to his services through the end of next season.  Even though they're not using the services, they own the rights to them.

So does that mean it wasn't ours?

PIT gets 2016 3rd rd pick from BUF as compensation. Pick was originally NYI but has condition attached to it, so PIT likely getting VAN pick


Per @SabresPR, Dan Bylsma has the best points percentage (.668) of any head coach in NHL history with at least three full seasons coached.

If you want to WATCH the presser live at 4 p.m. instead of just listening and have TWC then you can tune into TWC News. 1 or 9 on most boxes.

WGR will have the news conference.

 

It's exciting to finally have a head coach, and one with a Stanley Cup victory on his resume.  Welcome Disco Dan Bylsma!

 

So when was the last time that was true? Bowman for sure, but after that?

That allows for the possibility of some low end RFA offer sheets. Glad the Sabres held tight and didn't give up the Sabres own 2016 3rd. The value of the 3rd doesn't matter much IMO, but that it isn't the Buffalo pick is good for flexibility.

How NHL head coaches have won more than 1 cup?  Just curious to know.  Obviously Daryl Sutter and Joel Quennville but who else has won cups as a coach?

It would be funny, though, if Blysma had found out the Devils were in the middle of an interview with Boucher and then called them.

A coach with Stanley Cup gravitas and winning ways.... a solid winning record as an NHL coach...... excellent!      Maybe only Joe Quenneville  would have made me happier in the Center Seat;  excellent news and our post-tank rebuild is well under way.

For current coaches, no one has won more than one Cup other than Sutter and Joel Q.  It is incredibly hard to win even one in today's game where lucky bounces often dictate playoff series winners.
