Sabres staying with Ruff, Regier

The Sabres, who have missed the playoffs three of the past five seasons and six times in 10 years, have decided to stay with their coach and general manager. Lindy Ruff and and Darcy Regier will return next season for their 16th year in the organization, team President Ted Black confirmed to The Buffalo News this afternoon.

As the Sabres cleaned out their lockers this week, Derek Roy, who has been in the organization for nine years, was among those who were critical of the way Ruff handled his players this season. The organization, though, has decided to stay with the longest-tenured coach-GM combo despite no playoff series victories since 2007.

Ruff and Regier spent Tuesday night in Rochester watching the minor-league Amerks play.
