From Buffalo News:

 

 

And the news we've all been waiting for -- Darcy Regier and Ron Rolston are out and Pat LaFontaine and Ted Nolan are in.

"Last night I relieved Darcy Regier from his duties as Buffalo Sabres general manager and Ron Rolston as head coach," Sabres owner Terry Pegula said at a press conference at First Niagara Center.

Pegula announced the creation of a new title in the Sabres organization, president of hockey operations, which will be filled by LaFontaine. Ted Nolan was named interim head coach effective today.

 

 

A step in the right direction; at least it's a start.

Step 2: get something for Miller while you still can.
Step 3: profit?

NHL?  2008.  He's been in the AHL and Latvia since.


Money on the board:  Current total: 0

$1 for a goal by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster.  An additional $5 for a series-clinching goal scored by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. $5 if the other team fails to score against a current Wing goalie after whom I have named a hamster.

Hamsters I have had:  (current Wings highlighted)

Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik

Niklas Matthew Daniel Robert

Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan

Andrew Patrick Ian Todd

Jordin Damien Gustav James

What else has kept him busy is The Ted Nolan Foundation; from Wikipedia:

 

Ted is very active in his foundation, the Ted Nolan Foundation “Through the philosophy of healthy lifestyle, the Ted Nolan Foundation is committed to the healing process to renew and revitalize the mind, body and spirit of our young people. We will explore to help us train a new cadre of Aboriginal leaders today, to take their rightful place in Canadian society tomorrow. We will help develop programs at the community level for First Nations youth in communities no matter how isolated or poverty stricken. We will raise scholarship funds for First Nation women wishing to complete their education.”

 

Plus, he's a former Red Wing; that counts for something, right?

I didn't look to verify this actually happened but allegedly a few games ago Rolston benched his first line for the entire third period.

 

I get trying to send a message, but then there's also making at least a half-hearted attempt to compete in the game.  And that's not going to happen with the entire first line on the bench for a whole period.

Finally, Regier ran the team into the ground. Always nice to see consequences for GMs that deserve it.

Good for Sabres fans, they deserve much better - or, at least, progressive-minded change. The improvement part remains to be seen.

Come on if you're going to reference a joke do it right lol

 

Step 1: Collect draft picks.

Step 2: ?

Step 3: Profit

Nice to see Ted Nolan back at the NHL level...Personally - I got the impression he was screwed over...Hopefully he can right that sinking ship in Buffalo.

How long before Stafford gets traded? And can we have him?

Nolan says John Scott plays Friday. "I'm looking forward to it."

 

Nolan also said he WILL entertain the idea of bringing Patrick Kaleta back. #Sabres

I think the Sabres despite the on ice product are in great hands, this Pegula guy really reminds me of Mr. I and the fans there deserve that. The timing may be odd but sometimes a change of culture is needed.

Sabres have nothing to lose, whatever they do will probably result in an improvement.  :lol:

They need an elevator system that works at the First Niagara Center so there isn't a repeat of this.  

Nolan's comments come leading up to the upcoming home and home games between Buffalo and Toronto, starting Friday.
