Sabres stunned by LaFontaine's resignation

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — So much for the momentum the Sabres were supposed to be enjoying with their first three-game winning streak in preparing to play Dallas on Monday.

“We traded our franchise player, we traded our captain. That’s tough enough as it is. And then all of a sudden the situation with Patty,” Nolan said. “Right now, I have to put my personal situation behind right now and really concentrate on those 22 guys here.”

Informed of Nolan’s comments, Murray said, “I’m not going to beg anybody to come work here.”

Murray said it’s his objective to continue rebuilding the Sabres, which is what he was hired to do with or without LaFontaine.

“I can’t make choices for him. He makes his own choices,” Murray said. “I’m not one to dwell on what-ifs and sentiment and all that. But I’ll forever be grateful that he hired me.”
