"on trades?? darcy has free reign to do whatever it takes. only constraint is stay within cap. there is no list of players he can't trade." [sic]
Now we get to see what kind of GM Darcy Regier really is. Frankly, I think he has it in him. I truly believe he was handcuffed by previous ownership. Prove me right, Darcy. Make a move. Make several moves! Blow this team up. Get rid of the plethora of potential-30-goal-scorers on this team and go get an ACTUAL 30 goal scorer. Get a true #1 center. Get a new coach. Get a shrink for Ryan Miller's fragile ego. Do what it takes!! I'm even willing to let go of my man-crush, Drew Stafford, and get stuck with yet another Sabres jersey in my closet of a player who didn't last if it makes this team better. (On a side note, it's a fact I'm jinxed when it comes to buying jerseys. I finally decide to get a player who I think is going to hang around a while, and they are gone shortly after. Next one is gonna have Perreault's name on it so it will last more than a year. In the meantime, I'll hang my Stafford jersey between my Satan jersey and my Dainius Zubrus "Zubaz" t-shirt from 289 Productions, and throw in my Stu Barnes bobblehead.)
The fact is, the Sabres have an overwhelming amount of young talent in Rochester. Package some Sabres, package some Amerks, package some prospects, draft picks, your sister, a gift card to Mighty Taco, I don't care. Sell the farm for a Jerome Iginla or a Ryan Getzlaf. Dazzle us, Darcy! Make the Sabres faithful stand up and collectively say "WOW!"
Off you go... go on... don't come back til it's done.
