The slumping Buffalo Sabres hope Doug Gilmour's grit, leadership and experience will bolster their stretch drive for the playoffs. The Sabres acquired the 36-year-old center from the Chicago Blackhawks yesterday for forward Michal Grosek, who last month expressed his displeasure at being benched by coach Lindy Ruff. The Sabres also got rookie forward J.P. Dumont from Chicago. The trade came less than 12 hours after the Sabres landed Chris Gratton in a four-player, two-draft pick deal with Tampa Bay. "Doug Gilmour gives us a strong presence on and off the ice, and someone who has won a Stanley Cup," Sabres general manager Darcy Regier said.

Coach Mike Milbury was appointed general manager of the New York Islanders yesterday and vowed to have the simmering Kirk Muller affair settled by the weekend. Milbury succeeds Don Maloney, who was fired Dec. 2. Darcy Regier had served as acting GM following Maloney's dismissal, largely over the Muller matter. "Mike has the character, leadership and decisiveness that can lead this organization to where we want to be," said Bob Rosenthal, Islanders co- chairman. Maloney traded for Muller on April 5, but the center was unhappy with the Islanders and finally was banished from the team last month, told to await another trade.

Mats Sundin agreed yesterday to a $5.5 million, 1-year contract with the Toronto Maple Leafs. The 36-year-old Swede, Toronto's captain, had 76 points (27 goals, 49 assists) in 75 games with the Leafs last season while earning $7.6 million. Leafs GM John Ferguson and Sundin's agent J.P. Barry had been in talks for over a month. What originally had begun as a 2-year extension ended up being a 1-year deal that includes a no-trade clause. "There's some ability there for us to save some money against the cap and use that to surround him with better players, to maximize the available [cap]

The Buffalo Sabres will not allow forward Miroslav Satan to leave the team to play for Slovakia in the preliminary round of the Salt Lake Olympics. Buffalo general manager Darcy Regier told Satan that his contract makes him a Sabre first, and that he won't be granted a leave of absence. "This has put hockey in a very bad situation, it's very tough to resolve," Satan said. "I don't think that's fair and I don't know what should be done about it. " Satan has spoken with other Slovaks, including Washington's Peter Bondra, and said he doesn't believe anyone will break ranks from the NHL. But the idea has been floated.

Miroslav Satan became an unrestricted free agent yesterday after the Buffalo Sabres declined to make a qualifying offer to the team's six-time scoring leader. By not qualifying Satan's $4 million contract for next season, general manager Darcy Regier said the Sabres can now use that money to address other needs, particularly on defense. Another factor making Satan expendable was the Sabres' depth of prospects at forward. "What it means is that you make choices," Regier said.

Restricted free-agent forward Miroslav Satan signed a 2-year contract with the Buffalo Sabres yesterday. Satan had 26 goals and a career-high 75 points last season, when he earned $3.55 million, and has said he wanted to be the team's highest-paid player. A seven-time 20-goal scorer, Satan had sought $5 million a year. The team had offered $4.5 million. Terms of the new deal were not disclosed. The deal was struck after a conference call among managing partner Larry Quinn, general manager Darcy Regier and Satan, who was in his native Slovakia.

Darcy Regier barely had time to sit at his new desk yesterday before he was asked the biggest question surrounding the Buffalo Sabres: What happens to coach Ted Nolan? Regier, introduced as the team's new general manager, will have little time before making his first major decision about Nolan, who led the team to the Northeast Division title and whose contract expires June 30. "I expect to start with Ted Nolan," Regier said. "Ted Nolan did an outstanding job last season. I am aware of some of the difficulties of the past.

The bankrupt Buffalo Sabres received an additional $15 million line of credit and approval to pay four players their deferred salaries yesterday. There were no objections to the request made by Sabres attorney William Thomas in Buffalo bankruptcy court. The request for an additional line of credit was expected. Judge Michael J. Kaplan had granted the Sabres up to $25 million in debtors-in-possession financing when he approved an initial $10 million line of credit after the team filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection last month.

Nearly two months after asking to be traded, Buffalo Sabres holdout Donald Audette has a new home. Audette, the Sabres' No. 3 scorer last year who has spent this season working out on his own and watching the team on television, was traded to Los Angeles for a second-round draft choice, the Sabres announced yesterday. The Kings offered a two-year deal worth $3.6 million, according to Audette, who will join the team in St. Louis tonight. "It feels great," said Audette, whose negotiations with the Sabres ended in bitterness.

Ted Nolan needed only a few seconds to consider the contract offer from the Buffalo Sabres before realizing he would be looking for a new job. Nolan, the coach of the year after guiding the Sabres to their first division title in 16 years, rejected a one-year deal yesterday and said a weekend to think it over wouldn't change his mind. "I don't need any time to analyze this," Nolan said by phone from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. "I wasn't satisfied with it. I wasn't thrilled with it. I don't need five days to make a decision.

HOCKEY IS A simple game, so let's keep this really simple: They're not going to make it this time. That's what your eyes tell you, even amid the better games played by the Flyers in this shortened, game-compacted season. There are too many missing parts and too many meshing ones to believe that this group, as assembled today, will find its identity in time to even reach the playoffs, never mind make a run. One day after what should have been a springboard road victory over Pittsburgh, the Flyers began a five-game homestand with a sleep-inducing, 5-2 loss to Florida.

There is little question that the Buffalo Sabres are the best team in the Eastern Conference right now. Take a peek at the league's scoring. Buffalo have three players in the top 15. Chris Drury is tied with Atlanta's Marian Hossa for the league lead in goals, with 10. His 14 points are tied with several players for third-best in the league. With 10 victories and no losses, the Sabres matched the 1993 Toronto Maple Leafs' NHL-record start. The Sabres fell to Atlanta in a shoot-out yesterday.

Five groups are interested in buying the NHL's Sabres and keeping them in Buffalo, commissioner Gary Bettman said yesterday, a day after the team's outgoing owner was arrested on fraud charges. Bettman, who did not identify the potential ownership groups, said it was "purely a coincidence" that he was in Buffalo 24 hours after John Rigas and two sons were arrested in connection with the financial meltdown of Adelphia Communications. Bettman said he and Sabres general manager Darcy Regier planned yesterday's meeting "well before" Rigas' arrest.

Michael Peca is in hockey limbo no longer after the Buffalo Sabres traded their holdout captain to the New York Islanders yesterday. Peca, who sat out all of last season after failing to negotiate a deal with the Sabres, was dealt for young forwards Taylor Pyatt and Tim Connolly. Peca, reached at his suburban Buffalo home, said he first heard the news from a friend, who heard it on Canadian TV. A few minutes later, Sabres general manager Darcy Regier called Peca to confirm the deal.

All-Star goalie Dominik Hasek isn't on the trading block, Buffalo Sabres general manager Darcy Regier said yesterday. "We have no intention of trading Dominik Hasek," Regier said, dousing growing speculation that the team might have to deal the goalie, who could make as much as $9 million next season. "He's contributed an awful lot to this hockey club. And the other side, quite frankly, we're looking at the immediate future," Regier said. "He's starting to move in that direction where his game is really coming around.
