07:38 AM ET 01.07 | While Tim Murray could be set to land an NHL GM job, it may not be where many expected. The heir apparent to Senators' GM Bryan Murray has emerged as one of the top candidates for the vacant job with the Buffalo Sabres and may be the frontrunner. League sources told the Ottawa Sun the club's assistant GM -- a respected talent evaluator -- has had two interviews with Buffalo president Pat LaFontaine and talks between Murray and the Sabres were heating up Monday. It's believed Boston assistant Jim Benning is another finalist for the post. While some might wonder why Murray would want to leave his post with the Senators to take over the struggling Sabres, league executives say Buffalo is positioned to succeed with two No. 1 selections this spring, prospects coming up and owner Terry Pegula is willing to spend.

By "frontrunners", I assume they mean there are gentlemen who are running very, very far away from this post.

You're always the frontrunner when you're running a 'solo' race.

French's Mustard would immediately sue the Sabres for loss of revenue.

IDK but this goon at work is from Buffalo and irks the living **** out of me.

1) Always says "I'm from Buffalo so I'm basically Canadian"
2) Why would you ever admit you are from Buffalo?

This guy sent an email Friday to the entire office about how he made it in, roads are plowed, parking lot is clear.....meanwhile Jersey calls a SOE, 95 S was closed 202 N was closed....

I replied and said "Mike, not everyone is within walking distance of work". Got my head bit off yesterday by management but well worth a good hoot.

Yes!

Or find some one to give him some developed talent to work with and he will make them work, and the others around him. We've seen it before, and he wasn't doing that bad with the Ilses before Capuano came in and got a team of young ready prospects and a few stars as well....nice.

Not Rickety D anymore.
