Buffalo Sabres scoreboard stating that head coach Don Granato will be fired
The Sabres are set to miss the playoffs again. Could this mean the end of the line for head coach Don Granato?

The Buffalo Sabres’ hopes of breaking their playoff drought are dwindling by the day. After a disappointing loss to the rival Ottawa Senators, rumors are swirling about a potential coaching change.

NHL insider Chris Johnston reports that the heat is on head coach Don Granato, especially given the team’s continued postseason absence.

Could Don Granato be on the Hot Seat in Buffalo?

While the Sabres have shown flashes of brilliance with young stars like Tage Thompson, Owen Power, and Rasmus Dahlin, they’ve failed to achieve consistency. At this point, the organization may have to make difficult changes to find improvement – even if that means parting ways with Granato.

Granato took the reins in 2021 after the firing of Ralph Krueger. He’s done much to foster a positive culture in Buffalo, but the lack of results is undeniable. With two years remaining on his contract, it wouldn’t be an easy decision, but it could be necessary.

Of course, it’s important to remember that there’s been no official word from Sabres management on this situation. For now, it’s simply speculation fueled by the team’s struggles. However, with a long history of missing the playoffs, the pressure is mounting.
