Barnaby in the booth
The big news out of Buffalo lately has been the sudden retirement of TV and radio analyst Jim Lorentz, and with a week before the regular season starts, the team is looking for his replacement in a hurry:
The Sabres have named former players Matthew Barnaby, John Tucker and Mike Robitaille to work three radio games with Jeanneret this week.Talk about a quick turnaround for Barnaby, who was playing with the Stars last season before concussion problems ended his career.
Asked if they were essentially trying out for Lorentz’s job, Quinn said: “You can think about it that way. We didn’t get a lot of notice. We’re trying to put together a broadcast team.”
He's working tonight's preseason game here in Toronto.
