Big news in Buffalo today as Sabres owner Terry Pegula announces a contract extension for the Buffalo Sabres General Manager Darcy Regier. The terms of the contract have not yet been released. Regier is in his 16th season as the Sabres GM and is the longest serving GM in the NHL.
Regier joined the team in 1997 and brought in Lindy Ruff as head coach after Ted Nolan. This seems like a questionable move for the franchise going forward as they have not won a championship under Regier and have missed the playoffs in 6 out of the last 10 seasons.
”He is a talented guy,” Pegula said today, “from what I read, maybe not everyone agrees with that.”
The sabres open up their season tomorrow at home against the Philedelphia Flyers.
