Bucky Gleason has a new column which I checked out because it was getting some discussion on Twitter, and the first line made me laugh out loud.  The headline is “Ruff Sends the Wrong Message” and the first line is, “Lindy Ruff is one of the best coaches in the NHL, but…..”  The article goes on to criticize Lindy for toeing the party line about the Sabres roster in comments made from prospect camp last week.

It cracks me up how Bucky castrated his entire column FROM THE VERY FIRST LINE with a qualifier which basically amounts to, “Oh, don’t worry, I KNOW Lindy’s one of the best coaches EVAH!  WOOOOO, Lindy!  Go Lindy!  Go Lindy!  It’s your birthday! It’s your birthday!”

Way to take a hardline stance, Buckster!

    Sometimes it’s hard not to feel conflicted about Lindy. I love Lindy Ruff. I just think he’s run out of ideas on how to motivated our particular lineup of miscreants. He sort of strikes me as the tough, proud little league coach who still takes the team out for ice cream regardless of whether they win or lose.

    I think the article went a little too far to attack Lindy. Then again, if I was holding Lindy and Bucky over a cliff and had to release one to save the other, Bucky better hope sharp pointy rocks can easily break falls.

    I agree that Lindy shouldn’t take too much heat for saying he’s fine with the team. What else was he supposed to say? I just thought it was funny that Bucky’s big, “slam Lindy” post started with by covering his “Well, as we ALL KNOW, Lindy is ONE OF THE BEST IN THE WORLD” bases.

    At what point do all these minor, toothless criticisms add up to Bucky or Jerry questioning Lindy’s reputation as the BEST?
