Sabres fire Ralph Krueger


It’s been hard to watch Head Coach Ralph Krueger and the Buffalo Sabres. The post-game pressers and the on-ice performance of the team finally became too much for the organization.

Krueger coached 97 games for the Sabres, and they had a 36-49-12 record over that time. Only 26 regulation wins in 97 games, along with a 12-game losing streak might get any coach fired.

Assistant coach Don Granato is expected to take on the Interim Head Coach role.

The Sabres have also fired assistant coach Steve Smith.

GM Kevyn Adams is scheduled to speak to the media at 11:30 a.m. today. We’ll update this throughout the day with more info.

I founded Buffalo Hockey Central in 2008 and have poured hours and hours into this site. Luckily, we have a great team of writers and designers who have helped keep this up and running despite a ton of out-of-pocket costs. We do this because we enjoy it, and we're desperate to see the Sabres win the Cup someday, but they have to make the playoffs first.
