07:30 AM ET 11.20 | Just how Buffalo plans to rebuild is taking some shape this week. [The Sabres] had been rumored to be interested in the services of Bruins assistant general manager Jim Benning in their current GM search after firing longtime general manager Darcy Regier. Now it's official. Per a Bruins source, newly minted Sabres President [Pat LaFontaine] officially voiced that interest with the Bruins organization on Tuesday, and was granted permission by the Boston Bruins for what would be a clear promotion for the Boston front office executive. Benning was hired away from the Sabres organization by B's general manager Peter Chiarelli in 2006 after a long run in Buffalo as the director of amateur scouting for that team, and that's where he really made his mark as a keen evaluator of hockey talent.

Speaking of hot clicks......oh some months ago the SI swimsuit issue was making its way around the office cubicles(courtesy of you know who). One of the younger guys got called into the principals office one special day for an undeserved lambasting (idiot boss who cant manage). So I decided to promptly cut out Ariel Meredith and Kate Upton and post them in his cube with some words of encouragement regarding priorities in life and perspectives. He loved it but had to take them down and file them due to complaints of a frat like atmosphere. He left the firm last month so someone new got his cube. The office lady went to go clean out his drawers for the new chick and came across Ariel and her words of encouragement.....priceless. She walks up to me and says here....I know you were behind this!!!
