It’s the first ever “Emergipod” edition of Talking Buffalo Podcast.   The Buffalo Sabres have fired head coach Ralph Krueger and Patrick Moran has a conversation with sportswriter Joe Yerdon about it.

The winless streak reached 12 games on Tuesday night with a loss to fellow NHL doormat New Jersey and it was the last straw.  Krueger has been relieved of his head coaching duties less than two seasons into the job and with still another year and nearly $4 million remaining on his contract.

Patrick and Joe discuss much of what got the Sabres and Krueger to this point, thoughts on intern head coach Don Granato, who the next coach may be, how much this currently constructed roster is even capable of improving regardless of who is coach, and plenty more.

Patrick also tells the story of finding out the night before the firing that this was going on, which included him putting up a cryptic tweet before the New Jersey game was over.

All this and much more.  Follow Joe on Twitter @JoeYerdon.
