BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Sabres owner Terry Pegula wants to keep goalie Ryan Miller and forward Thomas Vanek in Buffalo beyond next season, while acknowledging both players will have a say in determining their futures. "Yes, we want them here," Pegula told the Sabres-controlled segment broadcast on Buffalos WGR-Radio on Tuesday. "I can tell the fans Im concerned, too. ... They have a say in that decision. What that decision is? No ones been re-signed. So were still working." Miller and Vanek futures are uncertain with both entering the final year of their contracts. They represent essentially whats left of the Sabres veteran core after the team elected to rebuild its under-performing roster with youth and stockpiling draft picks over the past year. Vanek, Buffalos top offensive threat, has gone as far as to say that he isnt interested in staying in Buffalo if the team is planning on a lengthy rebuilding process. In response to Pegulas comments, Vaneks agent, Steve Bartlett said its premature to discuss his clients long-term future. Bartlett said, hes had no talks with the Sabres, which he doesnt consider unusual because NHL rules prevent the team from signing Vanek to a contract extension until next month. "From our standpoint, theres no animosity and no demands. This is nothing Thomas and I have spent a lot of time talking about," Bartlett said. "Were not coming at this any more positively or negatively." The Sabres have declined interview requests for Pegula, who had not spoken publicly in two months. Media-shy to begin with, the Pennsylvania billionaire has grown even more reluctant to grant interviews in the face of growing criticism regarding his under-achieving franchise and his decision to retain general manager Darcy Regier. The Sabres have missed the playoffs in each of the past two seasons, four of the past six years, and not won a playoff series since 2007. Pegula defended Regier, calling him "a very qualified person." "When you look at the history, even with the Sabres, whats he done wrong?" Pegula asked with a laugh. "Help me out here." Regier has overseen the teams youth movement, a process that will continue in the NHL draft on June 30, when the Sabres open with two first-round picks, Nos. 8 and 16. The team has expressed an interest to move up further in the draft to land one of the top-three prospects. Before saying he had no intention of criticizing the teams previous owner, Tom Golisano, Pegula said Regier might have faced financial limits in re-signing players and building the team. "Maybe someone was holding the painters hand while he was doing the painting, I dont know," Pegula said. "I have a different management style. And Darcy has a chance to flourish under our management style. ... Im giving him more latitude in the way we operate the team with less financial restrictions." Pegula has taken a free-spending approach since completing his purchase of the Sabres in February 2011. In Pegulas first six months, the Sabres committed more than $140 million in salary to adding free agents and re-signing players. Pegula joked that some fellow NHL owners might not agree with his open-wallet approach. "You might talk to some of the other owners around the league and theyll tell you, Whos this new owner? What is he crazy," Pegula asked. "But its my style. So Im going to do things my way." Pegula also backed Regiers decision in promoting Ron Rolston to take over as head coach without conducting a search last month. Pegula said, Rolston had earned the job in closing the season as the interim coach after Lindy Ruff was fired in February, following Buffalos 6-10-1 start. Pegula noted Rolston went 15-11-5 and had the Sabres in playoff contention entering the final week of the season even after the team dealt three core players, including captain Jason Pominville, in separate moves leading up to the trading deadline. "Ron didnt give us much choice last year," Pegula said. "You take away some of his good players and then, by the way, he does pretty well." Air Max 97 Valentines Day Femme . Anthony Davis had 31 points and 17 rebounds in his seventh straight game with more than 20 points, but that was only enough to keep the Pelicans competitive into the final minutes. Andrew Bogut had 10 points and 15 rebounds for Golden State, which rebounded from a loss a night earlier in Oklahoma City and snapped a two-game skid.

Defencemen Drew Doughty, Shea Weber and forward Ryan Getzlaf also scored for the Canadians, who started their gold-medal defence 2-0. Goalie Roberto Luongo, getting the call in place of Game 1 starter Carey Price, was solid when needed in making 23 saves for the shutout.

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Colts coach Chuck Pagano returned home to Indianapolis in a good mood.A 31-26 win Sunday on the road over the Green Bay Packers should do wonders for his teams confidence going into a bye week.Jordan Todman had a 99-yard return for a touchdown on the opening kickoff, Frank Gore rushed for two touchdowns and Andrew Luck shook off two interceptions in the first quarter with two clutch third-down throws in the fourth quarter to hold off the Packers.This was about as close as a must-win game as it could get at midseason for Indianapolis (4-5).Everybody knew exactly where we were and what the stakes were. Its a whole different world today, right now. Tomorrow will be a totally different world, Pagano said. A 4-5 record is way different coming off this then going back home and being 3-6.The Colts survived after letting an 18-point lead with 9:35 left nearly disappear. They withstood Aaron Rodgers comeback attempt.Not an ideal start offensively ... from my game, the two interceptions. Like anything, youve got to move on, Luck said . The defense built up strong early, which was huge. Then made enough plays at the end to win.Rodgers 3-yard touchdown pass to Randall Cobb with 3:29 left got Green Bay (4-4) within five, capping a 14-point spurt in four-plus minutes. Rodgers finished 26 of 43 for 297 yards with three scores and an interception.Luck responded on the Colts next drive with what Pagano called two unbelievable plays.The quarterback dodged a potential sack by blitzing safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix to throw a 20-yard pass on third-and-10 with 3:07 left to tight end Jack Doyle.Luck also found T.Y. Hilton for a 27-yard completion on third-and-2 with 2 minutes left to put the game away. He finished 23 of 36, throwing both interceptions to Clinton-Dix.We didnt play good enough, Im disappointed, Im irritated, the fact that we were not sharp as a football team, Packers coach Mike McCarthy said.Other notes and takeaways from the game:PROTECTING LUCKThe Colts, who had allowed an NFL-worst 31 sacks coming into the game, gave their quarterback decent protection. Luck was sacked twice and maneuvered out of other tight spots, including a 7-yard scramble on a bootleg on third-and-1 wiith 37 seconds left in the second quarter.ddddddddddddHe deftly engineered a 15-play, 96-yard drive that ended with an 8-yard touchdown pass to Donte Moncrief with 11 seconds left to give Indianapolis a 21-10 halftime lead.LOW ENERGY?Familiar problems surfaced early for the Packers, who lost their second straight game. The offense had trouble getting going until the fourth quarter. But the defense gave up at least 30 points for a second straight game, and special teams also hurt them.Todmans kickoff return to open the game seemed to be a Green Bay buzz-killer.Weve all got to be a little mentally tougher. I dont understand the way the sideline was after that first play. We go down, lets get a field goal and well win the game. Its 7-3 early on. Weve got to be a little tougher. Thats the mark of a team, Rodgers said.INJURIESRodgers said he had his left foot stepped on pretty hard. I mean, thats a common frustration from time to time, just getting stepped on really badly. Its fine.Cobb finished with two catches for 14 yards. Questionable before the game with a hamstring injury, Cobb didnt play until the second half.I took a conservative approach with him. I was going to use him only when we needed him. Obviously, we needed him in the second half and he gave us everything hes got, McCarthy said.Safety Micah Hyde (shoulder) left in the fourth quarter. The Colts had no injuries to report.FURRY FRIENDA persistent squirrel livened up the crowd at Lambeau Field.The squirrel first made its appearance in the first half, then returned late in the third quarter. With the Packers driving at about the Colts 12, the squirrel dashed along the goal line, forcing the officials to call timeout. The squirrel finally went out of bounds, but not before causing a stir on social media .The Packers had to settle for a 27-yard field goal with 1:46 left to get within 24-13. No word on if the squirrel made the traditional Lambeau Leap to celebrate.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow Genaro Armas at: https://twitter.com/GArmasAP Wholesale Black NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys 2018 Cheap Stitched Jerseys Wholesale Black NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys From China Cheap Jerseys Wholesale China NFL Jerseys White ' ' '
