There was a Major Announcement today. I’m sure you’ve heard about it.
So long Darcy, goodbye Rolston. Thanks for your hard work. Welcome back Pat. Welcome back Ted. And welcome back to $100 Sabres tickets on Stubhub.
Who saw this coming? No one, really. Not even us, though we did just post a nicely timed #FireDarcy post. Yesterday, we touched on 3 reasons why Darcy Regier should be fired, now.
There’s much to be made of this day, lots of feelings and analysis and other #hottakes to delve into. But for now, one thing stands out. More on that later. First, let’s return to the common sense that was yesterday’s post. Call it prognostication, call it serendipity if you want. But it was just common sense. A quick Sparknotes review (you can skip ahead if you read the post):
Last week you #suffered along with us as we explored three reasons why “Darcy Regier just can’t be fired… yet.”
This week we’re following that up with the crowd pleaser. We’re presenting three reasons why Darcy can and should be given the axe today, each of which based on the entirety of his tenure, and not just this historically woeful season.
Have a seat, Darcy!
Darcy Regier was fired last night.
In your dreams.
But when you woke up, he was still here, and when you hopped on the Twitters, you saw that he squashed the Pominville Welcome Back Show that the organization had put together. That’s some weird unreasonable grandpa/dictator stuff going on there.
You want him gone. You want something new. Something with a clear agenda coming into the rebuild. Unfortunately, you’re screwed, because there are 3 big reasons ya just can’t get hang him by his old hockey skates yet.
Don’t fret, Jason. You’re still big in our hockey hearts (and in our record books).
How in the name of ye olde hockey gods did we actually beat the San Jose Sharks last night/this morning?

June 30th is not that far off.
Since we have 25 more days to wonder about who the Sabres will trade/select on draft day, here’s 5 fun new things you should be thinking about.
This draft could be fun. As in we all get really angry and throw stuff at the TV.
Or not – we can all keep talking about MacKinnon and Drouin. ENDLESSLY.
