Sabres' Nolan close to new contract: report
Buffalo Sabres interim coach Ted Nolan is reportedly close to accepting the job full-time.

Buffalo Sabres interim coach Ted Nolan is reportedly close to accepting the job full-time. He told reporters in Buffalo on Monday that his representative is handling a new contract with general manager Tim Murray.

"I guess he and Tim will be talking soon if [they haven't] talked already," Nolan told the Olean Times Herald. "It's formalities and getting things ironed out and doing all the legal stuff. … We'll leave it in their hands for now."

Nolan, who first coached the Sabres from 1995-97, returned to the organization when he was named Sabres interim coach on Nov. 12, 2013 after Ron Rolston was fired. The Sabres are 15-22-7 under Nolan following a 4-15-1 start.

Quote of the Day

This is a big year for us in a lot of ways. You can see Garth and management really trying to find that solution to get us into the playoffs and consistently have that. The pressure is great. You have to enjoy it. It just means there's a great opportunity ahead of you.
