June 13, 1995
A press conference is called at Memorial Auditorium to announce that John Muckler is stepping down as head coach to concentrate on his general manager duties full time. After the disappointing lockout-shortened season that saw the Flyers dispatch the Sabres in five games in the playoffs, speculation was rampant that Muckler had "lost his team." Muckler agrees to continue as general manager despite word from team president Doug Moss that about $10 million would have to be lopped off the Sabres' considerable payroll. A search for a new head coach begins.

Oh yeah, I really blew June 11. On that date, Scotty Bowman and Darcy Regier were hired by the Sabres, in 1979 and 1997, respectively.
