Yes, he interviewed yesterday. Supposedly more candidates are being interviewed this week and next. Seems odd then to have Pegula have a presser today if things are moving this quickly. Why not wait until the GM has been hired?

And if Lombardi was already on the radar, why wait to fire everyone? They need every second they can get with the new people.

I think Lombardi comes in as hockey pres. Then picks an up and coming assistant gm, and coach.

Don't get my hopes up.....

We all know they'll hire a coach first. Perhaps the interview yesterday was to see what lombardi thinks of Ruff ? Ruff wouldn't be my first choice but whatever.

Is it too much to hope that Murray/Bylsma, Reinhart/Eichel/Risto equals Tallon/Savard, Toews/Kane/Keith?

As Sabrefans, all we have is hope.

There will be no President of the Sabres. Russ Brandon will never be fired, he will be given more and more power, he is such an amazing influence, Terry sees it we all see it :wallbash: :wallbash: :wallbash: :wallbash:

Jack Eichel first question out of the box... called it! 


Pegula calls Eichel reports a complete fabrication. 


Pegula - I was not involved in the last GM / coaching search as much as I should have. I regret that #Sabres

Reputation as an owner - there's a lot of turnover in professional sports. Lots of GMs change jobs. These things happen in sports.

He regrets, a lot, not being a part of the last gm / coach hunt. That's pretty good info for me

Doesn't sound like a hockey president is forthcoming. Sounds like just a GM and then Coach.

Jeff Crisp will be heading up the Amateur side until we hire someone, the pro side will be (overseen) by several different people until that new person comes in.

Nope. That only distances Pegula from what's going on, and he's seems pretty pissed off on not being informed and not knowing what was going on
