Cassidy will remain coach in Rochester




Buffalo Sabres' general manager Tim Murray told WGR on Thursday that Chadd Cassidy will remain coach of the Rochester Americans.

Murray said he wants to evaluate everyone in the organization before making changes and that includes the Amerks' coach.

Cassidy took over as Rochester's head coach after Ron Rolston was hired to replace Lindy Ruff in February 2013. The Amerks have made the playoffs both seasons under Cassidy, but have been eliminated in the first round. They lost in five games to the Chicago Wolves this season and were swept in 2013 by Toronto.

The Amerks finished this season 37-28-11 and were 16-11-1 under Cassidy last season. 

He will be in charge of valuable merchandise next season with former first-round picks Mikhail Grigorenko and Joel Armia likely to be in the AHL.

Cause all these high picks are flourishing there!
All this "purported" talent in Rochester is really producing, or even doing anything, lol. The cupboard is almost bare and Cassidy don't bring much home! I see little positive happening.

Cassidy
Why u people dissing Cassidy? he did a good job considering all the circumstances last 2 seasons. That being said, he needs to get Amerks past 1st round of playoffs and a DEEP playoff run to keep job for after this season.

Re: For your information
There is almost no way that Grigorenko and/or Armia start next season on the Sabres.
