Steal of a deal for Florida - former 2nd round pick, who hasn't been given a full time shot.

Decent pick up by Florida

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

Certainly a better player than most 5th rounders end up being.

Nah, not yet. Have players preparing to return from injury and such - have to clear roster space.

He has a good shot but that's about it. Hasn't been good offensively or defensively at the highest level. Played several games on the first PP unit too and didn't do much. He's still young though so who knows.

I guess Sabers are trying to free up some room for Ballard.

This.

At least put who got traded in the title so I don't have to click the title to see some AHL'ers got traded.

There was sure a lot of hype around Brennan earlier this year - point a game AHL defenseman - not much patience I suppose. 10 games in the NHL...and dumped for a 5th. Strange organization the Sabres are.
Tallon replaces Ellerby...

Last year he was a non-factor in the NHL. This year as well, but trading a high second round pick for a fifth round pick is just incredibly idiotic. The problem that Regier was facing is that if he tried to send Brennan back to Rochester in the AHL, then Brennan would have had to clear waivers. Since that wasn't going to happen, Regier dealt him to the Panthers. I have a hard time believing that out of 29 teams the best that Regier was able to get was a lower round draft pick. Regier needs to go. If you guys need an assistant GM, maybe Ted Black would be willing to give him to the Canucks for a large bag of pucks. Any takers?

Sorry SabresFan1 - of all the GMs in the NHL, probably the only guy I'd trust less with my team is Jay Feaster. Of all the stupid moves Regier has made, imo it was all topped off when he fired Ruff. It would take a magician to make a playoff team out of that roster - I thought that was a cheap, desperate move by Regier. I agree with you - his own resignation would have been a more appropriate outcome.
The Sabres are going nowhere fast, Regehr, Leopold and Sulzer are all UFAs - I'm not sure why they couldn't have just scratched Brennan as opposed to either waive or dump him (isn't Sulzer on IR?). As it stands he was picked up by Tallon, who already has as much young talent on the blueline as anyone...I find that interesting.

Yep. He just had surgery to repair a torn knee ligament. He's out for the season. The Sabres will re-sign him though. He's a pretty darn good D-man. It's a shame that the Canucks had no room for him.

I agree with you on most points here. As a Sabres fan I constantly shake my head at some of Darcy's moves but Lindy had to go as well. He had been there too long. But for every Rieger head scratcher he will pull off a move like the Hodgson deal or Guastad for a first! He confounds me because one day he is a genius and another he signs Ville Leino to a ridiculous contract. And matching Vanek has to be one of the dumbest moves in NHL history. Vanek is great but that return would have been franchise changing.

And Brennan really isn't NHL calibre at this point. After 5 years he needs a change of scenery. Are AHL D really going for more than 5th round picks?
