Ralph Krueger behind the scenes when he was coaching the Edmonton Oilers 

  • The Buffalo Sabres today announced the team has hired Ralph Krueger as the 19th head coach in franchise history.
  • When he was coaching the Oilers, Ralph Krueger did everything he could to build a winning mentality in Edmonton.
  • Just listen to that speech and you’ll understand what kind of human being he is.
  • The problem with the Oilers is that Krueger didn’t fit in the Country Club mentality.
  • He wanted to transform this team into warriors and competitors.
  • But guys like Taylor Hall were too busy partying until 4am night after night.
  • A native of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Krueger recently spent over five seasons as the Chairman of Southampton Football Club, a soccer team that currently plays in England’s Premier League.
  • During his tenure in England, Krueger helped guide Southampton to four consecutive top-eight finishes in England’s top league for the first time in the club’s 127-year history.
