The Sabres finished the '89-90 season only a game or two out of second place in the NHL. Why tamper carelessly with success? Phil Housley was a vital part of the team.
Coaching is not of critical importance in hockey. Great teams in all sports are made by great general managers, like Punch Imlach, Bill Polian, and Dick Gallagher. Meehan is not a good general manager. Get rid of him quickly, Mr. Knox.
