When will the Buffalo Sabres learn as an organization? If Darcy Regier is faulted for liking his players too much, then the organization likes its GM even more.
On a day that Danny Briere signs with the Montreal Canadiens, Bobby Ryan is dealt to the Ottawa Senators; all while the Boston Bruins will remain at the top of the division, insert the Detroit Red Wings into the picture and Darcy looks like a genius.
We are going to have to suffer. When we don’t make the playoffs again because he is incapable of pulling the trigger to get things done, he will put out the I told you so card, and be safe for yet another season.
Problem is, in a thirty league team where the player no longer values the franchise like the fan does – it is not hard to rebuild and turn it around in a very short time period.
Another Free Agent Frenzy goes by and everyone around the Buffalo Sabres is getting better. Buffalo is getting younger.
I wasn’t expecting a parade on July 5th, but was expecting more than nothing. But then again, Darcy is still here.
