Buffalo Sabres Still Doing Things Darcy's Way

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.

Darcy Regier cannot get a deal done.  He has no respect around the league.  He can’t move Ryan Miller or Thomas Vanek.  He can’t convince a free agent to come sign in Buffalo.

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.
