Lindy Ruff is out as head coach of the Buffalo Sabres. 

The team announced it is parting ways with the league's longest-tenured coach. The move comes after a 2-1 loss to Winnipeg yesterday that has the Sabres last in the Northeast Division at 6-10-and-1.

Ruff had been head coach of the Sabres since the 1997-98 season.  He was the second-longest tenured head coach in all of North American pro sports, behind Gregg Popovich of the San Antonio Spurs.

I highly doubt that changing Coach Ruff will have a positive impact on the Sabres. I would have suggested changing the administrative team and making a more solid financial commitment to keeping talented players in Buffalo instead of trading them out for younger, more inexperienced (cheaper) players. Buffalo has had a long history of great talent and Coach Ruff will be missed.
