The Buffalo Sabres dug into their past in a major front office shakeup on Wednesday, firing general manager Darcy Regier and head coach Ron Rolston and hiring former Sabre Pat LaFontaine as their new President of Hockey Operations and former Buffalo bench boss Ted Nolan as interim head coach. Anthony Mason Jersey . LaFontaine told reporters at his introductory news conference that he will be hiring the next general manager and already has a short list. LaFontaine played six seasons with the Sabres between 1991 and 1997 and was most recently a consultant with the NHL and with the New York Islanders. "Our job is top to bottom to bring a championship calibre team year to year," said LaFontaine. Nolan returns to the Sabres organization for the first time since his stint as head coach from 1995 to 1997. During the 1996-97 campaign, he led the Sabres to the Northeast Division title with a 40-30-12 record and won the Jack Adams Award as coach of the year. "Well compete, well make it exciting and well make it a place people want to come and enjoy hockey games again," Nolan said after being introduced. Regier, who received a contract extension prior to last season, was in his 17th season as Sabres general manager. Under his watch, the Sabres reached the Eastern Conference final four times, most recently in 2007. Sabres owner Terry Pegula explained why Regier was not solely to blame for Buffalos most recent shortcomings. "He didnt do what he did by himself," Pegula said. "There was input from many people, prior owners, myself. Why now? I just decided and thats the only answer I can give you. We work together and sometimes you get to the point where a change was needed." The Sabres hired Rolston as their permanent head coach last spring after he served the interim position following the firing of Lindy Ruff in February. He led the Sabres to a 15-11-5 record after Ruff was fired Feb. 20 following a 6-10-1 performance. Before being selected interim coach, Rolston had coached the Rochester Americans, Buffalos AHL affiliate, since 2011. The Sabres finished 21-21-6 and missed the playoffs for a second straight year and fourth time in six seasons. They have a 4-15-1 record this season. Kristaps Porzingis Jersey . Ryan Callahan trade talks caught a lot of people off guard. Details are now emerging about why the Rangers would consider such a move. Darren Dreger: He wants a lot of money. Its been widely reported that Callahan is looking for a seven-year term around $6 million per year. That is not accurate. Im told that it is more than $6. Carmelo Anthony Jersey .L. - Defending womens champion Alberta improved to 3-0 at the Canadian junior curling championships with a 10-3 win over Ontario in Sundays afternoon draw. http://www.nbaknicksauthority.com/willis-reed-knicks-jersey-c-19/ . Right-hander Todd Redmond took the loss. Jose Bautista hit his second home run of the spring. Here are a handful of tidbits from around camp: Hutchison impressive The Blue Jays are being cautious when talking about their young arms but internally, excitement is building over the way Drew Hutchison is looking and performing this spring.SANTA CLARA, Calif. - San Francisco left tackle Joe Staley thinks sacks can be a deceiving statistic and he points to St. Louis right defensive end Robert Quinn as an example.Quinn set the Rams franchise record with 19 sacks last year. The fourth-year veteran has yet to record a sack this season. In fact, rookie defensive tackle Aaron Donald has the Rams only sack.Numbers dont tell the whole story, said Staley, who will be lining up against Quinn most of the time Monday night in St. Louis. He looks pretty good. He has a fast first step and uses his speed to his advantage. Hes also added to his change of movement.Quinn has drawn extra attention this year, especially with defensive end Chris Long out with an injury. Just dont tell Staley that Quinn is not as effective as he has been.Theyre pass rush is very good, he said. Those numbers are misleading when it comes to sacks. Theres pressure, theres hits and there is just being disruptive.Quinn has nine quarterback hits and five quarterback pressures this season, an indication hes getting penetration. The Rams also own the best pass defence in the league.When you watch the tape, the quarterback is getting rid of the ball or something happens or he just dishes it, its just getting out of his hand, 49ers offensive co-ordinator Greg Roman said. We will not be lulled into that trap because all youve got to do is watch the film. (Quinn) is playing better than he did last year.Staley anchors an offensive line that has been in flux early in the season, with a few setbacks leading to personnel changes. The line has gotten better and Staley said they played their best game Sunday in a win over the Kansas City Chiefs. Charles Oakley Jersey. We made great strides, especially in the running game, he said. The other stuff we just have to deal with. Last week was a good building block.This weeks trip to St. Louis begins a stretch of road contests in four of the next five weeks.Any time you are on the road is a challenge because of the crowd noise, Staley said. Were good at the silent count and we trust our centre to snap the ball at the right time.Wide receiver Anquan Boldin thinks its even more than dealing with the noise.Its a chance to see what were made of, Boldin said. Its a chance to see what kind of players we are. On the road, we take an us against the world mentality. We play our best when we feel that way.Boldin criticized the officiating the last time the 49ers were on the road: a loss at the Arizona Cardinals. He has no complaints about the officials the past two weeks at home.Its been fair the last two weeks, he said. Maybe were getting better officiating crews. All I wanted to say was that whether you call a bad game or a great game, just call it the same both ways.NOTES: The 49ers signed WR Kassim Osgood to a one-year deal. To make room on the roster, the team has released QB Josh Johnson. Osgoods been released and resigned three times this year. .. Defensive co-ordinator Vic Fangio said CB Perrish Cox has blossomed this season. Hes got good instincts as a corner. This is his first opportunity, at least with us, to have extended action as a corner. Hes taken full advantage of it. ... Boldin has six career 100-yard games against the Rams, his most against any team.
