The Buffalo Sabres have fired head coach Lindy Ruff and have named Ron Rolston as interim head coach. Brochu's take: Ruff shouldn't have a problem of getting another NHL head coaching job, but he may have to wait till next year.
The Sabres have placed forward Cody McCormick on waivers.
The Anaheim Ducks have re-signed goalie Viktor Fasth to a two-year, $5.8 million contract extension.
According to CBC's Elliotte Friedman, Pittsburgh Penguins GM Ray Shero was watching the Colorado Avalanche/Minnesota Wild game. Friedman speculates that he could be looking at forward Matt Cullen. Brochu's take: Cullen would probably only cost a draft pick. Source
