The Buffalo Sabres have fired head coach Dan Bylsma and GM Tim Murray.
"After reviewing the past season and looking at the future of our organization, Kim and I have decided to relieve General Manager Tim Murray and Head Coach Dan Bylsma of their duties," owner Terry Pegula said in a statement. "We want to thank Tim and Dan for their hard work and efforts that they have put in during their tenures with the club. We wish them luck. We have begun the process to fill these positions immediately." Bylsma coached the Sabres for the last two seasons. Buffalo missed the playoffs in both campaigns and the team's winning percentage slipped from 0.494 in 2015-16 to 0.476 in 2016-17. A report surfaced on Wednesday that star center Jack Eichel had "no desire" to sign an extension with the Sabres if Dan Bylsma was still the coach and a day later he was relieved of his duties. The timing does not look good, especially after the report was denied so vehemently by Eichel and his agent. Apr 20 - 10:20 AM
