Sabres Reorganize Front Office, Hire Pat LaFontaine As President Of Hockey Operations
Published November 13, 2013
TWITTER REAX: NHL.com's Dan Rosen wrote on his Twitter feed, "Lafontaine is a great guy, was a great player, someone you want around. But it must be noted that he has almost no front-office experience. ... That said about Lafontaine, you have to gain experience somehow. He has a chance to make a difference in Buffalo again. Good for him." Yahoo Sports' Nick Cotsonika: "Really like what Lafontaine is saying. Sabres have to be patient and smart. He knows what he has to do. Now he needs to execute." NBCSports.com's Joe Yerdon: "You get a very warm, likable feeling from both LaFontaine and Nolan. That might be needed here." ESPN.com's Pierre LeBrun writes, "Terry Pegula was sold on a rebuilding year but I think the level of bitterness and outright anger from fans no longer could be ignored." Buffalo-based WGR-AM reporter Pat Malacaro: "Pegula not laying it all on Darcy, and I can respect that. Saying (paraphrasing) decisions made as a team, not just by one person." Buffalo-based WTSS-FM co-host Rob Lucas writes, "Betting any available single game #Sabres tix for games thru holidays get sold by end of week. A coach can sell tix for a bad team."
