He WILL win the Jack Adams next year. Partially because the teams talent is going to start peaking, but mostly because he is one of the greatest coaches out there. A shame he hasn’t been coaching and good for the sabres.

So below .500 winning record, not even fully NHL season, other than the world cup of hockey hasn't done much internationally ...... and THIS is the best hire of the off season? Take it ez EK

The Sabres may have just gotten the BEST coach hired this off-season.

Whoa, whoa, whoa, pump the brakes.

I'm very cautiously optimistic.

Ottawa Senators in a surprise 4:00am press conference named their new head coach. Bruce Garrioch, who was the only media member in attendance, said he thought it was a brilliant choice. Unfortunately, the team was unable to publicly release their new coaches name because he is currently finishing off his 3rd stay in rehab. And, as we all know, those kind of things and names are anonymous. But they were able to confirm that friends and family called him Bob.

Botterill tried to coax RK out of Southampton in 2017. So while he did interview others, I don’t think this was his 4th or 5th choice.

I don't know about this. Plain and simple for us Sabre fans, show us results.

High energy, ultra positive motivator.
He is a players coach and great with young guys who are struggling with confidence.
He will be good.
He fits the new era of players

Sabres fans (me included) have had our eyes on Keefe and Gronborg this summer, and we were all a bit testy about it too. understandable haha, but this choice will sit well with us as we read and hear more about it, as the "x factors" that this man has match up very well with some of the persistent issues this team has dealt with (and not so well at that). i am pleased. ONWARD!

How many accounts do you have Eklund?
All 2 positive posts are obviously his.

I don’t see an issue giving the guy a shot. He could turn out to be the best hire of the year. He may make a very positive impact and further the team towards the playoffs.

Not: he’s the greatest coach hire of the year. Oh my God has Buffalo outdone themselves now. This is unbelievable... the best thing that happened to Buffalo since they won the draft lottery.
