Sabres owner Terry Pegula and team President Ted Black have decisions to make (if they haven't made them already). They have an underachieving organization that has gone five years without success. They can rip it apart. They can do nothing. They can make minor moves.
In a poll on Sabres Edge last week, high-profile trades along with management and coach firings were on the minds of plenty of fans. Knowing change comes slow, if at all, in Sabreland, it's time for a tweak to the poll -- especially after Monday's locker cleanout day.
Derek Roy said coach Lindy Ruff shouldn't have gone to the media to blame his players for failing to make the postseason. Thomas Vanek said Ruff still treats him as if he were a 21-year-old rookie despite more than 500 games in the NHL. Ryan Miller, as Bucky Gleason wrote, made $6.25 million again this year but didn't justify his salary, plain and simple.
So, if you could get rid of only one person from the Sabres in an attempt to make them something other than an also-ran franchise, who would it be?
