Pat LaFontaine has resigned as the Sabres' president of hockey operations.
LaFontaine is done after about four months on the job. It also comes a day after face of the franchise Ryan Miller was dealt along with Steve Ott to the Blues, and LaFantaine was nowhere to be found. TVA Sports' Renaud Lavoie reports the "last straw" for LaFontaine was this trade. LaFontaine wanted to give the longtime Sabre an extension, while general manager Tim Murray, whom LaFontaine hired, wanted to have him dealt. Coalescing with a GM and expecting the final say was always going to be difficult for LaFontaine in this situation. The Sabres say LaFontaine will return to work for the league.

According to the New York Post, former NHLer and Hall of Famer Pat LaFontaine has been contacted by European investors about the possibility of buying the New York Islanders and keeping to the club on Long Island.

He is reportedly interested in the idea and may move forward with a bid, according to sources. Islanders owner Charles Wang is believed to be seeking $300 million for the struggling franchise that Forbes valued at $149 million. Wang wants a new arena and he has stated that the team won't play another game at Nassau Coliseum beyond the end of their lease in July 2015.

Pat LaFontaine reportedly resigned today following the firing of Isles' GM Neil Smith on Tuesday.

LaFontaine was hired as a senior adviser on June 8 - the same day as Smith and Isles' head coach Ted Nolan. Sources now say that LaFontaine handed his resignation to Islanders' owner Charles Wang after the press conference today announcing Garth Snow as New York's new GM. If true, there is truly something strange going on on the Island and we are sure more will come out shortly. Stay tuned.
