ROOT: An era comes to an end

(Continued)

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Did we really need to see the Lindy Ruff era end in Buffalo? Yeah, we did. While Regier is responsible for the uninspired players we have, it was Ruff who developed the poor system that those players were languishing in. A complete overhaul is needed if our team is going to win the Stanley Cup, and it needs to start this offseason.

Thank you, Lindy, for giving it a try. Now that the team has an unlimited budget, as per Terry Pegula, we need a coach and general manager that can bring home the hardware. You had the chance and you just could not get it done, but you are still one classy guy and we wish you the best of luck.

George N Root III is a Lockport resident and guy who believes that the Stanley Cup belongs in Buffalo. His column appears every Wednesday and is usually filled with a lot of complaining. He can be reached at georgeroot@verizon.net.
