‘With Rolston, it’s simple. The Sabres were 4-15-1 and have been bad, and getting worse, as 16-year GM Darcy Regier’s tenure has droned on. Even owner Terry Pegula’s infusions of enthusiasm and salary cap cash haven’t helped. Firing Regier and Rolston, going back to the future to get Nolan and new president of hockey operations Pat LaFontaine might work out, and it might not — Nolan was once coach of the year in Buffalo, and LaFontaine, while not experienced in the front office, is tremendously bright — but chances are the problem is player personnel and that won’t change overnight.’
