To quote Terry Pegula, “Darcy ain’t going no where!”
The Buffalo Sabres have announced that Darcy Regier has agreed to an extension to remain on as the team’s general manager.
The news was announced during a press conference held by the Sabres this afternoon.
Reiger is entering his 13th season as Sabres general manager, the longest tenured GM in Sabres history. He’s also part of the longest tenured active GM/head coach tandem in sports.
Pegula said that he approached Regier about an extension, and believes that he is the perfect man for the job. Regier has been scrutinized heavily for not putting a top team on the ice, especially after failing to keep Chris Drury and Danny Briere in the Summer of 2007. However, it’s only the beginning of the third year under the Pegula ownership, and Reiger has finally been given the resources to improve the team how he sees fit.
In the time since Pegula has taken over, the Sabres have aquired Robyn Regehr, Christian Ehrhoff, Ville Leino, Cody Hodgson, and Steve Ott, just to name a few. These are moves that were near impossible for Regier to make under the previous regime of Tom Golisano and Larry Quinn.
The terms of the extension weren’t disclosed, and, as in the case with Lindy Ruff’s extension a year ago, they may never be.
