Having gained ownership's backing to continue rebuilding the Buffalo Sabres into contenders, general manager Darcy Regier is short on specifics on how long it might take.
Asking for patience, the only assurance Regier could make on Monday was in cautioning that more ''suffering'' might be in store before the job is complete.
Regier has not yet determined whether interim coach Ron Rolston will take over on a full-time basis next season.
And he's not sure whether his start-from-scratch plans will include keeping goalie Ryan Miller and leading scorer Thomas Vanek.
Regier, at least, isn't going anywhere despite the Sabres (21-21-6) missing the playoffs for a second straight year. Team president Ted Black opened an end-of-season news conference by announcing the GM will be back for a 16th year.

Miller has long been a player who draws attention to himself, be it on the ice or in the locker room with his sometimes emotional, rarely uninteresting interviews. So naturally, the notion that Friday may have been Miller’s last game...
First the 4% increase in ticket prices and now, this exchange between the media and Buffalo Sabres team president Ted Black.

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,
While debate rages over who should win the NHL’s annual honors, such as the Hart, Norris and Calder trophies, the 2013 Chutzpah Award has been decided by acclamation.
The winner is: the Buffalo Sabres.
No organization could even come close to competing with the one from western New York that has earned this dubious achievement...
