Phil Housley On His Start As The Head Coach Of The Buffalo Sabres

from Chad Graff of the Pioneer Press,

“Obviously, when you’re not winning, the pressure builds and you have to try to handle all those things and the stressful parts of the job,” Housley said. “But I love the challenge. I love coming to the rink, I love getting better, whether as a coach or demanding more from players and trying to turn the organization around.”...

But injuries and a lack of depth have left Housley limited with the Sabres as the Hall of Fame defenseman tries to work with his Buffalo blue liners.

“We continue to work with those guys, but we’ve been banged up back there, which is too bad,” Housley said. “We haven’t had our top six since Day 1. That’s been a big problem for us trying to create chemistry with partners. But we just try to bring the compete level. That’s the measuring stick day in and day out.”
