With the topic of extensions taken care of, Regier talked about both the Sabres assistant and general Rochester coaching vacancies. Regarding Rochester’s vacancies, he said, “We’ve begun the interview process. We’ll continue it through this week and probably next week. Hopefully within ten days/two weeks we’re in the position to finalize it.” Regarding the open assistant coaching job with the Sabres, he remarked, “Lindy is out of town for this week but will be back next week and I think he’ll close that out as well.” One possible candidate to coach in either city is Jay McKee, who I talked to earlier in the summer about how he might continue his hockey career. He’d said he told Regier about his desire to come on board with the coaching staff at the NHL or AHL level and remains hopeful that he can return to the organization he became a star with.
