Krueger on the Yakupov slide.
“I found that it was very spontaneous. It was real. There was nothing staged about it.... ...I felt that goal was in line with the situation. If he does that 25 times this year, we’ll be fine with that.”

Yakupov Career PPG .39
Under Krueger .65

you don't over pay for that though.. just saying. nothing in his career warrants much more than a 1 year league minimum contract.

Jeff Skinner was informed who the Sabres planned to hire as head coach. Others in the team's leadership group were also told about Krueger, who will meet with Eichel and Reinhart in Slovakia next week

I said this the other day. It’s important to him and I bet when he realized PH was a goner that’s when the extension talks cooled.

He’s staying

Jets fire GM and Adam Gase is the interim GM now. Could be good news for the Bills?

"I will do everything within my power to find out what this group is made of quickly. ... It's up to me to figure out how I can help them add percentage points to their individual game." - Sabres' Ralph Krueger

That's a quote that will determine how his career in Buffalo is described

After reading a pile of articles on Krueger, i am definitely warming up to him. My only wish is that he was 49 instead of 59. Anyway, he's one of us now so we need to support him. Hopefully the players feel the same way and actually listen to him and play his system.

Nope. They should have been though. Green and black. Olio verde is some of the best stuff ever to be drizzled over a salad.

Gase wanted him just not at the price they paid him

Doubt they find anyone willing to take him at that cost plus whatever it would take to acquire him

I don't know if you guys saw what Sexton said about Ruotsalainen, but apparently he does not have to go back to Finland if he doesn't make the Sabres.

If his club team in Finland [Ilves] is prepared to let him stay in North America, if he doesn't crack the Buffalo lineup, he has the ability to stay. So, it's not completely 100 percent [that] if he doesn't stay in Buffalo he must return.


Basically, the club has to allow him to stay in North America, if he wants to.

The biggest takeaway for me:

Jan. 28, 2013, on why he doesn’t like putting his lines constantly into the blender: “There are certain advantages that grow out of lines also going through difficult games together. Because the conversations on the bench are always between those three…. I’m not a big fan of a lot of changing. What you can see within the games, I don’t mind mixing up lines once in a while through a game to try break it, throw somebody into another line… There’s a lot of flexibility there. But your foundation, in this league, where things are coming at us so fast, we need to find some continuity in the people we’re playing with to also have some things develop instinctually in those lines… We’re being extremely patient with this, more on the hope that the synergies can grow. If Nail (Yakupov) suddenly ends up in a completely different situation with different partners, he’s going to start at the zero point again.”

So Mittelstadt won't be playing LW with Sobotka as his center?

Cuz let's not do that again
