Just one day after firing Phil Housley, a tweet from Eric Duhatschek hinted that the Sabres may already have their next coach close to signing.

Todd McLellan has been an NHL head coach for 11 seasons, spending time with both the San Jose Sharks and Edmonton Oilers.

His teams made the playoffs in seven of those 11 years, and he was fired by the Oilers after a 9-10-1 start to this past season.

The Sabres hired Housley, who didn’t have any prior experience as a head coach, but McLellan has 806 games under his belt.

If this is indeed true, what do you think of the move?
