Sabres Fire Botterill, Sexton, Greeley and Hire Kevyn Adams

The Buffalo Sabres made headlines Tuesday morning by announcing that General Manager Jason Botterill has been fired along with Assistant GM’s Randy Sexton and Steve Greeley. The team has named Kevyn Adams as the new General Manager.

Later in the day the organization also fired the entire Rochester Americans coaching staff of Chris Taylor, Gord Dineen, and Toby Petersen. More on the Amerks firings:


There’s little that I could write about the firing of Botterill, Sexton, and Greeley that hasn’t been written elsewhere (which I’ll link to below). From the Rochester Americans side of things, this management group had done more for the franchise in focusing on a winning team than any prior management group since the Sabres returned to Rochester. From day one there was a focus on improving Rochester in order to improve Buffalo. Things improved in Rochester but they never improved in Buffalo.
