If there was any sure thing about the Sabres offseason, it was who would be in the front office come July 1st. Considering both were “free agents,” however, it certianly said a lot about just how uneasy Sabres Nation is going to be over the summer.
The good news is that the first step has been taken. The long rumored return of Lindy Ruff and Darcy Regier has been reported by the two monsters of the media: The Associated Press and Paul Hamilton.
Although not official, I think it’s pretty safe to say both are coming back, and in plenty of time to contact a Captain or two before the stroke of midnight on June 30th. Please. 17 days. Do your thing, boys.
