I still cannot figure out Darcy's logic.

The organization made a statement in the spring that they were going to clean house with some of the veterans, so Regehr, Pominville, and Leopold were gone. They decided to keep Vanek and Miller, both of which need and want a change, especially Miller.

Draft day was the perfect time for a blockbuster trade. I heard Edm and Stl were in talks for Miller (both perfect fits) and Min for Vanek. It was a perfect time to trade up one of their 1sts for a top-5 pick. Besides getting Jamie McBain, he did nothing (and drafted two dmen with their firsts, which I didn't like personally).

Then comes the free agent frenzy where he did his best statue impression. Leino should have been bought out with that $4.5mil contract (and the fact he is injury prone). There were big time free agents they could have signed, but as usual he didn't get anyone besides Tallinder, who he did reaquire in a trade.

Having Miller and Vanek in the locker room will be a big distraction. They need to get some descent roster players in return, run with Enroth as starter, and sign a solid free agent veteran goalie like Jose Theodore or, yes, crazy Tim Thomas. David Leggio signed elsewhere and I think Matt Hackett will benefit from being the Amerks likely starter.

Just my $.02

He sucks. and until he is gone, I doubt the Sabres are going to contend for a cup. He was the one above ANYONE else who should have been fired YEARS ago!

Conservative GM's like him don't work out in the long run. Look at Ray Shero, the opposite type, and how he's done. He should have been fired before Lindy.
