Darcy's extension 5 years - Per LeBrun

http://espn.go.com/blog/nhl/post/_/i...-talking-wings

"Iíve talked to some GMs the last few days," Regier told ESPN.com Wednesday afternoon. "Itís a pretty quiet market right now. A number of teams have very small things they want to do, quite honestly, with the hope that whether itís with their players or our players, theyíre going to get them on track because of their previous history of them being a lot better. That kind of leaves it where weíre saying, 'Letís touch base again later in the week or later on.' Teams sitting in positions similar to us are hoping to turn it around with the group that they have and then in the event they donít, looking at the trade market. But as you said, itís pretty soft right now."

And so while Regier works the phones, heís hoping the answer comes from within the roster he assembled. The 3-6-1 Sabres, who began the season 2-0, host the rival Montreal Canadiens on Thursday night in what amounts to a must-win even just a quarter into this shortened season.

It starts with playing a little defense. The Sabres are dead last in the NHL in goals against, allowing an average of 3.70 a game.

"We have to focus our efforts on the defending side, more on stopping goals than scoring goals, and thatís from the goaltending position on out," said Regier. "Itís a team effort. It hasnít always been the same reasons but theyíre linked. The good thing is that, thatís something Lindyís good at, fixing the defensive side of the game. Thatís work we have to do and thatís how weíre going to get better."

Lindy Ruff has been the head coach in Buffalo since 1997. A growing number of Sabres fans -- growing further from last season, when Buffalo missed the playoffs -- would like to see a change behind the bench. But thatís not the plan, Regier said.

"Weíre working hard to get this turned around after 10 games," said Regier, who was signed to a five-year extension last month. "And weíll continue working on it as a team. I have full confidence that the work Lindy and I will do will get it done."

Darcy Regier extension is for 5 years

Buried within a Pierre LeBrun article about Regier looking for trades:

His contract ran out they gave him a new one. It doesn't mean he can't be fired.

Im a Darcy supporter so the extension doesn't bother me, but his firm belief in Ruff is too much

Sickening. But, in reality, the contract means nothing.

Mostly posting because the length of the extension wasn't made public...and I didn't know until I read that. The additional comments are interesting though...

Interesting as in ... $!@$ his couch

If he is fired, is he guarenteed his salary for 5 years or is it just terminated?

He probably gets at least 50% of it. It's definitely not just terminated.

Unless the contract states otherwise, it is terminated.

Give it a rest, guys. Just listen to the Black interview. No one in the organization is going to call someone out in a public.

It's all irrelevant. If we keep under performing then they'll get the sack. Moot point from there really.

Then not really sickening at all.

I personally am getting less and less emotionally invested as I "age", but that may be because I have had little to be excited about as far as the on ice product and results are concerned. (I was excited during and after the Burins game. . . .)

I think it will be interesting how this plays out, but it really hinges upon what the players do over the next two weeks. If they keep losing at this pace, I think managemetn will act sooner than the end of the season. My fear is a solid if not spectacular turnaround that results in keeping coaching status quo.

They'll be like the Bills. They'll turn it around somewhat to the point where they are in a playoff hunt. Ultimately they won't make it but they will have been decent enough where they can't justify firing anyone.

I'm okay with this. Darcy isn't my problem. And as stated, he can still be fired despite the extension so...why is everyone so upset.

For someone who had been on 2 year deals for quite a while this is pretty big.

For those who say it means nothing:

Until Pegula actually does something to terminate a contract of that length I'll say its a ****ing joke. The guys deal wasn't even up before he signed it. Giving him 5 years means he is standing by his side. You guys can say he can get fired all you want, but I don't see it happening.

If you are even remotely concerned about the build of this team, you don't extend a guy for FIVE YEARS, 9 months to a year before his contract is up.

Pegula is blind being led by people who know absolutely nothing about the game on the ice.

5 ****ing years. No wonder he didn't want it out publicly.

Just because he CAN fire him, doesn't mean he WILL fire him.

Conversely, just because he extended his contract, doesn't mean he WON'T fire him.

Uh why are people upset? Maybe because the GM, whose team hasn't won a playoff series since 2007, was just rewarded with a 5 year extension.

Buffalo fans are a strange lot.

I'm fine with Darcy's moves. For the most part I've loved what he's been oing to help the team since Pegula took over, or at least liked it. I don't want to turn it into another thread about the coach but I think another bench boss could get this team turned around and turn us into something great when the kids come along.

And we all already knew he was extended anyways so the hostility toward it is kind of weird now when we already knew he signed an extension months ago.

I must be in some bizarro world. You're happy with the moves that have resulted in no playoff successes in nearly 6 years?

Add in 4 play off appearances in 10 years where as over half the league makes the playoffs yet we are at 40 percent
