Rick Dudley Not Coming To Buffalo Sabres

The almighty dollar – in this case; the Canadian dollar is more important to Rick Dudley than joining the Buffalo Sabres.

Darren Dreger from TSN reports:


It makes you wonder how high on the list of candidates that Pat Lafontaine started out with.  With a new man in the wings to help rebuild the scouting department, the Buffalo Sabres remain without a general manager, but aren’t shying away from making personnel moves without a GM in place.  Dudley appeared to be the favorite to get the job in Buffalo – given his former ties to the team (which seems to be a major resume factor).  Apparently Rick Dudley is happy in Montreal and Marc Bergevin values him as a member of the organization.

Today the Buffalo Sabres announced that they have waived Corey Tropp in the hopes of reassigning him back to Rochester, a move made necessary by the fact that the Sabres claimed Matt D’Agostini from the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Smart hockey moves or more shuffling of piece while we wait for a new steward to run the ship for the Sabres?
