Sabres, Nolan close to three-year deal: report
It appears Ted Nolan will coach the Buffalo Sabres next season and beyond.

It appears Ted Nolan will coach the Buffalo Sabres next season and beyond.

TSN's Bob McKenzie reported Monday that Nolan has agreed to a three-year extension to remain in Buffalo and the contract has been turned over to lawyers. McKenzie added the deal is being finalized and is not done quite yet.

The Sabres are 15-26-7 since Nolan replaced Ron Rolston on an interim basis on Nov. 13. Buffalo was 4-15-1 when Nolan took over.

Quote of the Day

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
