Predators' Fenton hoping for shot at Sabres GM spot
Nashville Predators assistant general manager Paul Fenton isn't being bashful -- he wants to be considered to be the next general manager of the Buffalo Sabres.

Nashville Predators assistant general manager Paul Fenton isn't being bashful -- he wants to be considered to be the next general manager of the Buffalo Sabres.

Fenton has been with the Predators since the franchise was founded, serving as director of player personnel for eight seasons, and since 2006 as assistant general manager.

Talking with reporters in Toronto on Thursday, Fenton said Predators general manager David Poile had been in touch with Sabres president of hockey operations Pat LaFontaine in regard to Fenton's readiness to run a team of his own.

"[David] was talking to them about me being interested in the job," Fenton said. "There's no question I would love to get an opportunity to talk to them. … I believe that I'm ready. I'm hoping somebody else does."

Quote of the Day

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
