He gets a ring and the credit no matter what. He's literally doing nothing for that franchise right now, as far as their playoff run is concerned


Yep. He's like the guy that poured the concrete watching the interior decorators choose paint.

Per Dreger Botterill will be named GM today
Not sure what's been reported in North America. Jason Botterill will be announced as Buffalo Sabres GM today.

You should start a new thread.

I'd wait until it's actually announced, not when it's announced that it will be announced

TSN is all over it too.  When they run with something it is going to happen.  They have their 'insiders' (real ones) all over the place.

I mean I believe he's the choice; I believe Dreger and all those guys. I don't know, but to me, that tweet was more of a 'expect it to happen today', and I'd prefer something more concrete. Not like I'm going to lose it and crucify anyone that starts a thread for it, but the thread title would be 'Botterill Hired as Sabres GM', or something similar, and is that really accurate?


ITS ALL OVER. LOCK THE THREAD.

Well, there it is
