Ted Nolan Worried About Turning Around The Situation In Buffalo

from John Vogl of hte Buffalo News,

Nolan knows the easiest person to change is the coach, though there are no signs the staff is on the way out for the rebuilding team.

"The old slogan in sports is the easiest guy to change is the coach," Nolan said. "That’s the easy way. I’ve seen it done lots of times, and is it the right thing to do? I’m not too sure, but that’s just the fact in our business.

"The one thing we are doing, we’re not quitting. We’re not coming here and worrying about that. I’m worrying about how we can get this thing turned around."

Nolan's biggest complaint with the Sabres, who are 1-12-1 in their last 14 games, is they aren't listening to his teaching.

"You take the horse to the well, and it’s up to him to bend over and drink it," Nolan said. "You can’t force someone to do something. You can ask him and ask him.

"People are not scoring, you’re not scoring for a reason. You’re not paying the price to score. You’re not getting the puck out along the boards. You’re not paying the price to get it out along the boards. Enough talking, we have to start doing."
