He did smoke inside as well. It seemed like whenever he was waiting for his car he had a cigarette in his mouth.

 

Ah that makes sense.

Howzzlee.

 

How's Lee?


 

Just saw that. That's dedication right there :lol:

 

@SabresBuzz
Do not be surprised if Housley reaches out to his close friend Alex Mogilny to discuss an assistant coaching position with Sabres.
 
@SabresBuzz
Mogilny currently working in KHL. Housley, Mogilny very close. Mogilny was a puck possession magician who can impart his wisdom on Sabres

 

 

Not sure I buy that.  I could see Mogilny saying, "do X when challenged by a defender" and Eichel is the only player that can do that.  I'm not sure you can take that highly skilled stuff and translate it to the masses.

And Capuano will be joining his staff

23. Sounds like Jack Capuano will join Phil Housley’s staff in Buffalo. The Sabres kept goalie coach Andrew Allen, a good call because it sounds like he would have been snapped up quickly if free.

Yes, and it can't hurt

I didn't love him as a head coach but I think he would be a nice addition as an assistant.

Now hearing Capuano may be going elsewhere. Audible at the line, I guess. Told Allen is staying. Per Friedman

I think it's interesting that all these former Sabres keep coming up. Not that they aren't qualified, just interesting.

They should make it conditional; you keep your job if you convince Peterson to sign with Buffalo.

You're right.  I'll have to stop that.  How about Randy Cunneyworth?? ;)

 

Seriously, Ramsay checks all the boxes.  Never succeeded as a head coach, but has been a good assistant elsewhere.  And he did play with Housley for a few years.

And what about Rochester? I would say that's a more important coach to hire than guys who are going to help Housley run drills in practice.

Was just jumping on here to say this.  What an add he would be.  I'm sure he will be a HC soon but that would be a great transition for House.

Not sure he would but if so that'd be great for us

 

@DarrenDreger
As others have speculated. Expect the Panthers to announce Jack Capuano as an associate coach today. Focus on D and PK.

Tippett would be a great add.  He's a good coach and deserved better that the Yotes dysfunction.  He never said a bad word about the organization although he had every right to.

With Capuano focusing on D in Florida, it makes sense he would not be coming to Buffalo with Housley. Maybe the styles clashed?

Probably because he ran the entire organization :P

Totally random thought, but maybe Housley can steal Lane Lambert away from the Caps?

 

(I'm sure it is highly doubtful, but just throwing it out there)
