The growing contingent of Sabres fans calling for the head of long-time head coach Lindy Ruff won’t be getting its wish anytime soon.

Per the Buffalo News, general manager Darcy Regier says that any changes he makes to his struggling team won’t involve the man behind the bench.

“It won’t be the coach,” said Regier, who maintains the Sabres need to be better defensively to improve their 3-6-1 record.

“Offensively, we’re fine,” he said. “But defensively we have work to do.

“And when you think of where we are defensively, If I had a coach to pick to shore that up, Lindy is the guy.”
