Two Sabres scouts were also reportedly fired


The Buffalo Sabres’ house-cleaning went beyond the general manager and head coach.

According to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman, the Sabres’ director of scouting, Rob Murphy, and their director of amateur scouting, Greg Royce, were also fired today, along with Tim Murray and Dan Bylsma.

Murphy and Royce joined Murray in Buffalo in 2014 after all three had worked together in Ottawa.

Sabres owner Terry Pegula is scheduled to meet with the Buffalo media tomorrow morning.

He’ll have a lot to go over.
