Ted Nolan will likely be getting a three-year contract from the Buffalo Sabres when they return from their Western Conference road swing, which earns a two-thumbs up from Drew Stafford. “He’s a great motivator; he’s extremely simple on his philosophies,” said Stafford, who has been in Buffalo for eight seasons. “He tells us, ‘Look what you get to do for a living … it’s a special opportunity, don’t take it for granted. Show up and compete for a couple of hours.”
Many players could be shuffling out of Buffalo, including defensemen Christian Ehrhoff and Tyler Myers and forwards Chris Stewart and Drew Stafford.
Capitals GM George McPhee is in the last year of his contract, so this season’s outcome could decide his future in Washington. Jaroslav Halak did his part by winning his first game since arriving from Buffalo in a trade.
Ryan Miller and Steve Ott are already gone and the Buffalo Sabres’ fire sale concludes today when the NHL trade deadline hits at 3 p.m.
The Sabres took Tuesday off and will practice today in the Tampa Bay Times Forum in preparation for Thursday night’s game against the Lightning. After practice, several players will be nervously awaiting their fate.
Halak and Stewart went from a Stanley Cup favorite to the 30th-place team Friday. It was a shock, but they’re willing to make the most of their time in Buffalo. They also know they might not spend much time there.
It’s entirely possible Sunday was the only practice they’ll ever have in First Niagara Center. Ottawa is highly interested in acquiring Stewart before Wednesday’s trade deadline, while the Star-Tribune in Minnesota reports the Wild are hot for Halak.
