The Stanley Cup is awarded, the draft has been had. Now we wait and see how free agency pans out. With eleven total draft selections in yesterdays entry draft, the Buffalo Sabres stocked up for the future, but did they do enough for today?
It was two big defenseman in the first round for the Buffalo Sabres. Can we get Ryan Miller to return to Olympic and Vezina form by stacking a tall defensive corps in front of him? [Rochester Democrat and Chronicle].
Darcy Regier had expected Ryan Miller and Thomas Vanek to remain on the team through the weekend. Did he even try to move them on draft day? [Buffalo News].
Darcy wants to be bigger. Maybe that’s why we still have John Scott – and drafted a class of players that we wont see for two to three years, but stand all above six feet tall? [WGR550].
I gave Darcy a C in this draft, but what do I know. The team can’t score, and they didn’t address that in the draft. The team isn’t tough enough to play the likes of the Boston Bruins. They may have touched on that in the draft. I was expecting something different out of Darcy in a draft that was the “pinnacle” of his rebuilding his team that has failed over and over again, except it was same old Darcy, same old Buffalo Sabres drafts. ESPN gives the Sabres an A. What does ESPN know about hockey? [ESPN].
The big move of the day was Cory Schneider being sent to the New Jersey Devils by the Vancouver Canucks. Still shocked over this move, especially since things with Luongo have gotten so tumulus. Will that thing with Luongo get back to normal or at least some sense of normalcy? [Yahoo Sports].
