Darcy Regier: Nowhere Near Done for the Buffalo Sabres

July 12th, 2010 by Kevin Freiheit Leave a reply »
Darcy Regier has made a few moves this off season, but he is far from done. Buffalo still has about eight million left to spent before it reaches the maximum salary cup.

Everything has slowed down around the NHL recently, due to the Ilya Kovalchuk sweepstakes. Once that is over, expect Regier and the Sabres to make a few more moves.

Buffalo has already seen the addition of Jordan Leopold and Rob Niedermayer, two solid signings that should help the team. The Sabres also re-signed Patrick Lalime for another year. Lalime put up respectable numbers, but only went 4-8-2 last year.

While many Buffalo fans may not feel confident with Lalime in net, he is a veteran backup who Ryan Miller looks to for advice. Lalime is a great presence in the locker room, and is not a bad choice as a backup. His number slipped down a bit due to the time off between starts.

Buffalo still has a shot at obtaining Tomas Kaberle on defense. With him and Leopold replacing Henrik Tallinder and Toni Lydman, the defense would be improved. Craig Rivet may miss the start of the regular season, which may allow Mike Weber to see some playing time.
