Changes in Buffalo
Finally the day fans have been waiting and calling for had arrived. Terry Pegula decided he had had enough of the #FireDarcy, booing and despicable Sabres team on the ice and called for changes. Immediately following the ugly shootout win over the Kings, Darcy Regier and Ron Rolston were relieved of their duties and Pat LaFontaine and Ted Nolan were brought in.
LaFontaine took over as president of hockey operations while Nolan returned to coach the Buffalo Sabres on the same day Regier was let go. Pegula stated that change was needed and that the front office staff would need to be on the same page going forward.
