Canadiens decline comment on whether Sabres have inquired about Dudley for GM job

By John Vogl

Pat LaFontaine has a short list of candidates he'd like to hire as the Sabres' new general manager. There's speculation that Rick Dudley is on that list, but Buffalo would need to hire him away from Montreal first.

Dudley is serving as the assistant general manager for the Canadiens. A spokesman for the Habs told The News today that GM Marc Bergevin had no comment on whether the Sabres need or have asked for permission to speak with Dudley about their opening.

Dudley, 64, was a player and coach for the Sabres. He also has worked in the front office for the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Atlanta Thrashers, the Chicago Blackhawks, the Florida Panthers, the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Ottawa Senators.
