Tuesday, the Buffalo Sabres cleaned house after missing the playoffs for the ninth straight season and leaving one of its stars, Jack Eichel, “fed up.”
We knew the team fired General Manager Jason Botterill, members of the Sabres’ hockey operations staff, and the coaches and GM of its AHL team. But the full scope of the firings wasn’t realized until today.
According to TSN’s Frank Seravalli, 22 members of the organization were fired in total. Seravalli described it as “a bloodletting that may be unprecedented in NHL history.”
