Shame On Everyone In Buffalo

from Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News,

Shame on you, Terry and Kim Pegula.

You have run your hockey team into the ground. That your football team was one win shy of a Super Bowl doesn't excuse your inaction.

Shame on you, Kevyn Adams.

Do you want to be taken seriously as an NHL general manager? Then how can you tell us you're angry, use the word "unacceptable" about 27 times and then do nothing while another season goes up in flames? The way this is going, your first season in the chair should be your last.

You know what Adams should do? Park his butt behind the bench and coach this disaster for the final 29 games, just so he gets an up-close look at what he wrought.

Shame on you, Ralph Krueger.

You just never adapted your system to your players and the results are mind-boggling. They quit on you. You should be furious with them. But you know how this goes: It's your fault. Your career as an NHL coach should have been over two weeks ago. It's hard to fathom you still behind the bench.

Honestly wouldnt care if its something I disagreed with, this is the type of journalism I would expect to see for my sports team.

Not necessarily the blow hard type stuff, but the bold critique.

Totally agree.  I always love reading Mike Harrington’s stuff.  He’s smart, knowledgeable and doesn’t hold back when critiques are justified.  He’s the same way on the radio - I’ve heard him interviewed a few times on NHL Radio. 

Buffalo continues to baffle me.  I don’t know how or why they are this terrible.

Okay, close your eyes. Now don’t open them again until you can clearly picture HSJ going after Blashill the way Harrington went after Kreuger. Have a nice nap.

Like Joe Falls (Free Press until 2003).Falls would give certain Tigers a stat in his column as an RNBI (Run Not Batted In) or write underhand critiques like

Shane Halter (whom I once had the “pleasure” of seeing bat cleanup)

or as Mitch Albom put it in his eulogy,

Joe spoke like a New Yorker and asked questions like a New Yorker, and in the Midwest, that gets you noticed.

I never read Harrington’s stuff. He has always been a negative nancy regardless of circumstances. I don’t know how many years he’s covered the Sabres by now but it’s been a long time and his schtick has always been the same. He is a classic example of a negative know-it-all who rejoices in misery and makes everyone else feel worse.
