Nolan stresses communication

by Amy Moritz

Ted Nolan and Ryan Miller had a good long chat after practice Wednesday afternoon.

It wasn't anything major, but a chance for Nolan to get to know his star goaltender a little better, an opportunity to know the man and not just the numbers.

Improving communication has been a theme for Nolan since he took over as the Sabres interim coach last week. And if you want the players to talk to each other on the ice, it starts with them engaging with each other in the hallways.

"It’s just good old communication. That’s what we have to teach this team," Nolan said. "We have to get off the iPads and we have to get off texting and we have to say 'hello' and 'how are you' and 'good morning' and 'I got this guy, you got that guy.' We’ve got to communicate a lot better."
