Sabres Regier knew Rolston was his choice


‘Regier did not do a search as Rolston was the only person he spoke with. Regier said, “It was a process that we worked through, conversations about players, a little bit about the staff, a little bit about players in Rochester that we had an opportunity to see last week in their playoffs, so it’s time that we had available to spend that we really didn’t have during the season when Ron was focused on winning hockey games.” Regier went on to say, “I think that the time that we spent together it was about me confirming what I thought and just locking it in.”’
