Person familiar with search tells AP: Jim Benning, Tim Murray among 4 Sabres GM finalists

BUFFALO, N.Y. - A person familiar with the Buffalo Sabres' general manager search has told The Associated Press that Jim Benning and Tim Murray are among four finalists for the job.

The person spoke on the condition of anonymity Tuesday because the Sabres have not revealed the list of candidates to succeed Darcy Regier, who was fired in November. The search is led by Pat LaFontaine, the newly hired team president.

Benning is the Boston Bruins' assistant general manager. He spent 12 seasons as a Sabres scout, including eight as the team's director of amateur scouting before leaving for Boston in 2006.

Murray is in his seventh season as the Senators' assistant general manager and is the nephew of Ottawa general manager Bryan Murray.

Quote of the Day

There was a lot of talk off the ice. From a player's standpoint, that's not the talk in the room. GMs make decisions, coaches make decisions, but as a team you have to come together and be ready to go, and we are.
