Sabres President Ted Black and General Manager Darcy Regier today held an end of season press conference which slowly devolved into an uncomfortable circus.
What started out as questioning about the futures of Regier, coach Ron Rolston, and star players Thomas Vanek and Ryan Miller at around the midpoint turned into a testy back and forth, mostly between Black and a few newspaper reporters, which included accusations of defamatory comments and bias.
Aside from the bickering, the team announced that no decision has been made on Rolston, and that the futures of Vanek and Miller with the organization are uncertain.
