WOW!  Slapped in the pee-pee!  I really liked GMTM, hate to see him go, but I understand cleaning house like they should have done with the Bills.

I'm guessing Pegula insisted DDB needed to be fire and Murray didn't like that and Tim went down with the ship.

I tend to agree, he seemed to be moving us in the correct direction.

This probably means that DDB was GMTM's hire, not TP's.

Bylsma yes -  but Murray???  Shocking!   I don't know that Bylsma was Murray's fault - maybe it was?   Maybe Murray backed the wrong horse?  Maybe he really WAS a Dan Bylsma supporter?    

Murray had already made a lot of mistakes though....  all those toxic contracts for low performing d-players was the worst.

Honestly, I had a hard time disagreeing with almost anything he said. He was refreshingly honest, direct and informative.

That's all I can think. That GMTM actually liked Dan that much and decided to go down with the ship.

I think this almost has to be it. It happened day 2 of them talking. If they wanted to fire Tim and Dan outright they could have done that yesterday.

Yep, thinking the same thing.   Murray kept defending Bylsma's inane 'system' too.

I bet Murray stays if Lombardi isn't available. What do Rex, Byslma, Lombardi and Suter have in common? Recognition

 

I got bored reading your post... 

We're basically selling our soul to win

 

If we win


Honestly, I had a hard time disagreeing with almost anything he said. He was refreshingly honest, direct and informative. 

And he drafted well and made good, solid trades

 

 

BTW, you know who loves Evander Kane, right?

Wow! I am shocked! Taking the heat was admirable, but when you take the blame and criticism, sometimes it comes back to haunt you.
