Sabres Fans On Edge as Rumors Swirl

Buffalo, N.Y. (WBEN) - Is another major shakeup about to go down within the Buffalo Sabres?  And will this one be centered around the top executives in the hockey department at First Niagara Center?  Rumors and reports are swirling this weekend.

TSN's Bob McKenzie launched the speculation when he tweeted this earlier this afternoon, "Rumors abound of a potential shakeup in the executive suite of Buffalo Sabres. I've asked the principals for comment. No response thus far."  McKenzie, a repute hockey writer, followed up thjat tweet with this, "The BUF rumors I tweeted about earlier focus primarily but not exclusively on Pat LaFontaine. Still no comment from anyone in BUF".

WGR's Paul Hamilton and other reporters who follow the team have asked the Sabres for comment and there has been none so far.  Stay with wben.com and follow @newsradio930 on Twitter for the latest.
