VANCOUVER -- Vancouver Canucks coach John Tortorella understands his unlikely job swap with Alain Vigneault last summer makes for easy comparisons between the two.

With Vigneault and the New York Rangers back in Vancouver to play his former team at Rogers Arena on Tuesday, Tortorella is also very aware those assessments don't flatter him right now.

Hired to get more out of veteran group that had been knocked quickly out of the past two Stanley Cup Playoffs, Tortorella has the Canucks on the verge of missing the postseason altogether for the first time in six seasons with 79 points. Vigneault's Rangers are second in the Metropolitan Division in the Eastern Conference with 88 points after winning six of their past seven games.

BUFFALO -- Ted Nolan's return to the Buffalo Sabres is complete; now he's tasked with guiding the franchise through a rebuild.

The Sabres announced Monday they have removed the interim tag from Nolan and signed him to a three-year contract extension to be the full-time coach.

"I'm really excited about going with the next step forward and helping shape this team into a very competitive team and a team that will hopefully one day battle for a championship," Nolan said at a press conference announcing his extension.

Nolan was named interim coach Nov. 13 following the firing of coach Ron Rolston and general manager Darcy Regier. Current Sabres general manager Tim Murray said Nolan has proven to be the best man for the job.

"He's been in a lot of situations here that haven't been great," Murray said. "A lot of nights I've liked the way our team competed. We have to get him better players. Some games that we hang on and get a shootout loss or something like that, I think with better players and the way he coaches we'll get a better result. In trying times I've liked a lot of what I've seen."

When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.
