Pegula Concerned about Miller, Vanek's Return To Sabres
Please enter your comments below.
Mr Pegula is no doubt a very successful businessman, however I have to disagree with him about Darcy. He has promised to rebuild one to many times during his tenure in Buffalo. It's time to move on get someone in who takes action and is ready to move forward. A procrastinator like Darcy will never get us a Stanley Cup or the players who can win it for us.

How long has Darcy had an open checkbook in his tenure in Buffalo? Answer: Since Terry P purchased the team. Or were you referring to when Rigas embezzled all the money and ran the team into the ground? or when Golisano cared more about money than a Stanley Cup? or when Larry Quinn, the guy who is the reason Darcy didn't negotiate contracts during the season, even though he begged Larry to offer Briere 5 year/ $25 million contract, cared more about Drury, who wanted to be a Ranger, then resigning the one person, Briere, who was ready to sign from the start? Darcy has made more good trades and signings than not and even through the Dark Times between Rigas and Pegula drafted good players like Vanek and Pominville and Campbell and Paille, etc. Forget Curtis Brown over JP Dumont, Leino and Ehrhoff contracts, which I'm sure Leino will be bought out, all that says to me is Darcy is willing to do ANYTHING to sign a good player, which I believe will attract players looking for good money and a hockey-crazed town starving for a Cup. No matter what team or city a player plays for, those players will come to win the Cup. what would you say if Dracy got 1 or 2 of top 3 pick in this draft by trading Miller, a pick, maybe a player to Florida, who is looking for a goalie of Miller's caliber and same deal with Vanek, as with Miller, to COL, who could use some good scoring and not as far from having a better team, instead of rebuilding, especially with a lot of the good, young players that they currently have. Picture Seth Jones and/or MacKinnon or Drouin (Drouin more since we need and will need, after trading Vanek, Wingers.) It CAN be done and i believe we can get at least 1 of those players, which i would want Drouin, by trading Miller and keeping Vanek, to put WITH Vanek and Coho. I bet that line will ignite, if not I'm sure Grigs or Girgs would love having on their line, if we stick with the 8th and 16th pick we could get MORE depth for wing and defense positions which this team is lacking. Add that to the surplus of talent we have in the pipeline and those that are close or closer to NHL ready coming on this team. I have no fear that with some slick wheeling and dealing by Darcy we could have a very, very dangerous team sooner than he told us.
