    The Buffalo Sabres dug into their past in a major front office shakeup on Wednesday, firing general manager Darcy Regier and head coach Ron Rolston and hiring former Sabre Pat LaFontaine as their new President of Hockey Operations and former Buffalo bench boss Ted Nolan as interim head coach.
    LaFontaine told reporters at his introductory news conference that he will be hiring the next general manager and already has a short list.
    LaFontaine played six seasons with the Sabres between 1991 and 1997 and was most recently a consultant with the NHL and with the New York Islanders.
    "Our job is top to bottom to bring a championship calibre team year to year," said LaFontaine.
