I'm borrowing this post form the fine folks at Dear God, Why us? Sports. Be sure to check out their awesome website which is dedicated to snark, the Bills, the Sabres and the greatest invention in the history of the world...Cuss words. You can also follow them on Twitter.
Since Thursday night - a night I spent at church, mostly, only to catch the inevitable Sabres collapse on a radio feed as I headed home - I've been struggling with how to approach my own inevitable cathartic mess of a season wrap-up post here at the Deeg. As optimistic as I have been about this team and the imagined universe of possibilities for them if they could just find a way into the postseason, what we ended up with was a whimper of a death rattle. A mere glimmer of hope at the end of a season that cannot be called anything other than abject failure, leaving us all feeling even worse than we did before.

Buffalo Sabres head coach Lindy Ruff turned down an offer to coach Team Canada at the upcoming World Hockey Championship.
Ruff, who just completed his 14th season with the Sabres, guided Team Canada to a silver medal at the 2009 worlds.
TSN reported that Team Canada officials are formulating a "Plan B" to find a head coach.

Watching last nightâs Bruins-Caps on ice rodeo, I couldnât help but think of the Sabresâ Patrick Kaleta. The robust Buffalo winger and Chief S.Disturber would be thriving in such a series!
