Buffalo Sabres owner Terry Pegula is strongly leaning toward hiring a general manager with a proven track record to strengthen a franchise lacking in discipline and communication.

  • Sabres fire coach Bylsma, GM Murray

Pegula also says accountability starts with him and he has no excuse for why the Sabres took a step backward to finish last in the Atlantic Division and miss the playoffs for a sixth straight season.

Pegula spoke on Friday, a day after firing general manager Tim Murray and coach Dan Bylsma . The decision to clean house came after Pegula and his wife Kim met with Murray, Bylsma and Sabres players.

In overseeing the current search process, Pegula says he regretted not being more involved in the decisions that led to the team hiring Murray in January 2014 and Bylsma in May 2015.
