    Does it mean anything to you? If so what? What are your feelings? Are you going to the game?


    Personally I am a little sad and a little happy. Hard to not have feelings about the game. Want to win, lose or does not matter?

    Considering our team's current outlook? I believe he'll get cheers. :)

    His time was over last year, but he'll be remembered as a Pro-Buffalo guy and a great coach.

    I think anything less than an hour long video ceremony before the game commemorating his 50% playoff appearance history sends the wrong message to other potential coaching candidates throughout the league.

    Ruff was great. Great coach, he loves Buffalo and we should wish him the best.

    I hope he gets a standing O, and maybe a video montage the same way Peyton Manning did for Indianapolis.

    It'll be odd, period, seeing him behind any other bench, let alone that one.

    It'll be... interesting to see how the fans in the arena receive him considering the current state of the team.

    He will get a well deserved, great, ovation.

    I'll be there. They better do a 3̶0̶sec, 6̶0̶sec, 2̶min, 5̶min, at least a 10 min tribute thank you Lindy video with streamers and laser lights.

    Or I'm crossing my arms and leaving while stomping my feet and calling out Pegula for being such a terrible owner.

    Lindy Ruff IS the Buffalo Sabres IMO, he should get a nice ceremony for his return and then ultimately when the time is right he should get his name up in the rafters.

    Black already said there's going to be a video montage for Lindy (or, if you want to deride it, a "tribute video").

    Name in the rafters?? Wow.

    He'll get a nice ovation, mostly deserved, and he'll likely get a win. That's plenty.

    My min thought is I'm stuck with 2 tickets I can't use. I liked Lindy, he's gone. I've moved on. If I went and they did a quick something I'd cheer. If they didn't, I'd be ok with that too.

    I want to see Lindy get confused and walk over behind the sabres bench at the start of the first before realizing what he has done and heading back over to the Stars bench.

    Honestly, though, a standing ovation. Fans remember all the good times with Ruff might help alleviate the pain of having to witness another Sabres game.

    Also, for fun, fans get to compare Ruff and Rolston's coaching styles in a 60+ minute game.

    Lindy Ruff played for the club for 10 years (including several years as the Captain) and coached for 16, he is the franchise.

    After suffering through RonRon, I think fans will give him a HUGE ovation.

    Just stop. Ruff is no where near the franchise. Hasek is more than franchise, as is countless other players. A coach that didn't even win a cup is not THE franchise, or however you like to put it. Continuing to say it also won't make it come true.

    Not a fan of Ron, but to think that he has been given the same assets as Ruff to work at is naive.

    The man who won less than his coach? Gotcha.

    You do know that Marv is nothing without Kelly?!?! You do understand that Marv came back to the team and completely screwed it up?? You do understand that Marv has drifted off into irrelevance and Kelly continues to be a vocal leader for the team??

    Also, if you are going to argue about anyone else being the franchise, it should be Ralph, not Marv.
