'General Manager Darcy Regier has the most secure job in hockey as long as the Sabres are a ward of the NHL. The league has been running the team since June and will continue to do so until a new owner takes control. Even if Regier did have an owner breathing down his neck, the GM still has five years left on his contract. As for the coach, Regier has never wavered in his support for Ruff. Regier reiterated that stance Sunday.'
