Behind The Bench: Sabres hire Don Granato as full-time head coach, Eichel trade seems inevitable


The Buffalo Sabres officially made last year’s interim coach Don Granato their permanent head coach this past week. The hire comes as the Sabres begin their offseason with much uncertainty.

What's next for Buffalo? Hoppe breaks down why Granato was the right hire and why the Sabres roster could look drastically different by the beginning of next week.
