Kevyn Adams says he has authority to fire Ralph Krueger

The Sabres general manager spoke to the media in the midst of the team's recent tailspin

The Buffalo Sabres currently sit dead last in the NHL standings in points, and are in the midst of a five-game losing streak.

With that, general manager Kevyn Adams spent about 30 minutes on Friday speaking with the Buffalo media via a Zoom conference call.

If you missed Adams’ Zoom call, here's some of what he had to say:

Adams on if he has the authority to fire Ralph Krueger:
Yes. He understands the situation we're in and it's unacceptable.

Adams on what has gone wrong with the team:
It hasn't been good enough. The passion hasn't been good enough. The compete hasn't been good enough. ... Our 5-on-5 scoring hasn't been good enough. Period.

Adams on Jack Eichel:
He has not asked for a trade. ... Are people going to make a phone call and ask? Of course, but that's the extent of it.
