For the third time this week, Brough and I met with Dunkin’ Donuts coffee enthusiast Kay Adams to talk hockey — specifically, the firing of Lindy Ruff in Buffalo and which games we’re most looking forward to this weekend.

Without further ado, here’s the video:

    I agree with the 1st comment. This guy is a local legend. However, they built a team to emphasize their size and strength, and they can’t compete (obviously). Unfortunately, it is the Coach’s job to make his roster perform. A coach’s voice can get old fast, when the bodies can’t live up to what that voice is asking them to do. It is a shame, overall.

    He’s a great coach some team will get lucky and make him their coach… Sucks buffalo wastes a great American goalie and one hell of a coach…

    Regier has to go too! Pegula needs to get more players that can score!

    Tinker Bell Myers plays to soft? Also as much As I like the hometown kid Kaleta he either has to score or be cut?

    What would happen if Buffalo played the western conference? They wouldn ‘t have a chance?

    Sorry but Im disgusted!!
