Not sure about Bylsma, but Murray is fucking horrible.

I have to assume they already have negotiated with the new coach & GM given the timing -- Darryl Sutter?

Fuck them both, but especially GM Tim Murray. What a total douchebag nerd asshole. Totally ruined things with his big ego and assholeness. All the other GM's despised him and good luck getting another GM job. He will be black listed and rightfully so.

Bylsma didn't get the most out of his players, regardless of anything else, that's the most important so he had to go. I can't believe they gave him a 5 year deal.

NHL coaches should NEVER be getting these long term deals. Not sure when that started, but there is no point to it. Teams have to learn. 1 or 2 yr deals only. If they turn it down, then fuck them, let them try to get more somewhere else. 3 years at the most for an elite coach, that's it. They get fired too quick and then you have to pay them out. Stupid stupid stupid.

Glad Terry Pegula saw the issues and took out his balls to make this decision today.

Murray was awful. There were also rumors that Jack Eichel would not sign a long-term contract under Dan Bylsma shortly before this firing. The timing is odd for sure for his firing.

If Sutter replaces Bylsma, then good move.

Lindy Ruff will be back to coach. Jason Botterill or Dean Lombardi as GM.

Thinking outside the box, Ted Nolan as coach.
formerly Belak_2 aka Bleka...

They need to pay Lombardi whatever he asks for.

I am almost positive that Sutter will retire, but stranger things have happened.
