What The Hell Is Going On

As Mike pointed out just a minute ago, The Buffalo Sabres are reportedly preparing to or have waived Tim Kennedy, with the intent of buying out his contract. 

Remember, the Sabres could not walk away from his arbitration hearing of a one year, one million dollar deal according to the CBA. 


Ok, now that my initial reaction is done, the Sabres could be making room on the team for what Darcy alluded to in his comments last week about getting ready for training camp but still talking to some different avenues. 

If the Sabres do waive Tim Kennedy and nothing is done to this roster, I revert back to my previous statement of CHEAP BASTARDS. 

Stay tuned here, when news breaks one of us (its like a freaking quick draw contest here some days) will put up an update, and I am sure there will be plenty of reaction to what happens.

***Sabres confirm that the team has waived Tim Kennedy.  Teams will have until noon on Tuesday to claim him.  GM Darcy Regier will address the media after the waiver period.

    I totally agree. CHEAP. A million a year is not much considering he’s a young talent, and the arbitrator agreed he’s worth that much. PAY THE KID, DARCY. Very disappointed, and now we’ve probably offended Timmer and he’ll never WANT to play for Buffalo. That will spread to the whole locker room soon enough. Injustice will leave a bitter taste in everybody’s mouth, not just the fans, but the players who liked him too. Good luck Mr. Kennedy, you deserved better.

    Thanks for the read and the comment. I think the Sabres have a plan finally, one that involves getting bigger from the net out. The Sabres appear to be stocking up the defense corp.

    Maybe we are going back to an era where we win a bunch of 1-0 or 2-1 games enroute to another fitful year of hockey?

    You people don’t get it , do you ? It’s not Darcy , it’s the so-called president Quinn . How can you pick up players if you can only spend 5 million less than the cap ? Every season , it’s always 5 million less , granted , you have to save some cap money , but , the way that Purseman Quinn is doing it, is well wrong.I don’t even know if he can spell hockey .It’s the same song and dance from the Sabres brass and frankly I’m a getting a little tired of it.We , the fans of hockey , want to win NOW! Not five years from now , but now . Tom , fire Quinn , that is the best thing for you to do for the team .And while we are on the topic of firing somebody , the coach is a little bit long in the tooth , I mean , 13 seasons and nothing to show for it ? I mean , come on , 6 seasons was about all it’s worth , these days .

      I wish you were right with the part about only 5 million under the cap. It’s more like 8 mil every, single, friggin, year. I hate Quinn and I agree with you it’s all his dumbass.
