I hate to play the role of party pooper here and burst the bubble of fans hoping the Buffalo Sabres are ready to pull the trigger on Darcy Regier, but It’s pretty unlikely that Darcy Regier is going anywhere in the next 2 season’s. Earlier this week a rumour broke out giving fans hope that Regier was on his way out-of-town and that clock was ticking on him. Basically the fans #FireDarcy chant’s had been successful and Terry Pegula was ready to bring in a new GM.
While that all sounds nice and dandy, take it from someone who lives in Canada and has spent a fair share of time listening to Nick Kypreos, the guy has been known to make up news to stir up drama when there’s really nothing to talk about. In typical Kypreos fashion he has retracted his statement and is back-tracking on his story.
While It’s nice for Buffalo Sabres fans to chant #FireDarcy at games and believe that their message is being delivered, It’s going to take a lot more than some chant’s at games and a crappy hockey team for Regier to go. Remember he’s been in charge for 16 years, it’s going to take a lot to move him. Here’s 3 reason’s why Darcy Regier is not going anywhere anytime soon.
