Sabres Fire Head Coach Ted Nolan

Len Redkiles/NHLI via Getty Images(BUFFALO, N.Y.) -- The Ted Nolan era is over in Buffalo, again. The Sabres announced they've parted ways with the coach after a disastrous 2014-2015 season.

"I don't think it was a bad fit. I don't think it was a great fit," general manager Tim Murray said. "Maybe it's just chemistry. Maybe it's just two different personality.

"I know this isn't a popular thing," Murray added. "To me, it's about getting better. I feel this was an opportunity for us to improve and keep improving. And that's certainly no disrespect to Ted."

The Sabres finished dead last in the NHL this past season with 54 points after posting a 23-51-8 record.

Nolan originally coached the Sabres for two seasons from 1995-1997, but left the team when he was offered just a one-year extension following his initial success with the organization. He was re-hired in November 2013 when Ron Rolston was fired. He wound up going 40-87-17 in his second stint with Buffalo.

Sabres Acquire Evander Kane From Jets

Comstock/Thinkstock(BUFFALO, N.Y.) --The Buffalo Sabres acquired left winger Evander Kane, defenseman Zach Bogosian and goaltender Jason Kasdorf from the Winnipeg Jets on Wednesday for defenseman Tyler Myers, forwards Drew Stafford and Joel Armia, the rights to 2014 second-round pick Brendan Lemieux and the Sabres’ latest first-round pick in the 2015 draft.

Kane has spent his entire six-year career with the Jets, where he has scored 109 goals and 113 assists for 222 points in 361 career games. During the 2011-12 season at the age of 20, he led Winnipeg with 30 goals.

The Jets placed Kane on injured reserve on Feb. 5 because of a shoulder injury.

NHL Postpones Buffalo Sabres Game

Len Redkoles/NHLI via Getty Images(BUFFALO, N.Y.) -- The NHL announced on Thursday that the Buffalo Sabres home game on Friday night has been postponed due to severe lake-effect snowstorms in the area. Buffalo was scheduled to host the New York Rangers and a make-up date has not been announced.

More than five feet of snow has fallen across parts of Western New York, and as many as three more is projected to fall by Friday night. This has left many residents in and around Buffalo incapable of leaving their homes -- and has also accounted for multiple deaths.

Buffalo hosted San Jose on Tuesday night, one day after the first storm. An estimated crowd of just 6,200 was able to attend the 4-1 victory.
