BUFFALO, NY – The drama in the Sabres organization continued on Thursday afternoon, as a beloved arena hot dog vendor was relieved of his duties after a scathing Yelp review believed to have been written by forward Jack Eichel.

The news of the hot dog guy came hours after Tim Murray and Dan Bylsma were axed this morning, turning confusion and elation into devastation among fans.

The review, published on Wednesday afternoon, indicated that the vendor served cold hot dogs and undercooked burgers to fans.

"Less good at cooking than me," the review begins. "Probably the worst hot dog guy in the city."

"If I could give this a zero star rating I would."

The review went on to say that the vendor was more qualified to coach the team than "the current guy," fuelling speculation that he might indeed be the replacement that the Sabres are looking for.

However, after working in the arena for 20 years, sources within the organization seem to indicate that he may in fact be over-qualified for the position.
