BUFFALO, N.Y. — Buffalo Sabres president Ted Black says the team is already looking ahead on how to rebound from this year’s disappointing finish. And he adds those plans include moving forward with both general manager Darcy Regier and coach Lindy Ruff.
As difficult as it was on the franchise to miss the playoffs, Black told The Associated Press by phone that there’s “no time to wallow in misery.” He says the team will continue the aggressive approach in adding players it established last offseason, its first under new owner Terry Pegula.
Black cleared up any questions regarding Regier and Ruff’s futures by saying they will be back. Both have been criticized in the media this past week after the Sabres, and their high-priced payroll, finished ninth in the Eastern Conference standings.
