Sabres To Talk About Future Direction of The Team

 (WBEN/WGR) The Sabres cleaned out their lockers after another disappointing season Saturday, and will address the future on Monday with announcements that could touch on everything from the status of the General Manager to the goalie.

The team has scheduled a news conference for Monday afternoon with General Manager Darcy Regier and team President Ted Black.

"I would say the big (question) that everyone is thinking about is ' Who is going to be the person putting this team back together', probably,"  says MSG's Sabres analyst Rob Ray.

"If it's Darcy or whether they go in another direction or whatever they will decide to do. That would be the big one that everyone would look for and then once that decision is made, then.. obviously it's.. 'what are our needs and how do we approach it."

We know Buffalo’s rebuilding, but what we don’t know is if Ryan Miller or Thomas Vanek will be a part of it.

 "If it looks like it's a long rebuild, it probably makes sense for both parties to move on," Vanek said during locker cleanout Saturday.

Much of what Miller has been doing lately has been indicating that he feels he won’t be back.

Miller said, “I think it starts to happen as things tend to happen in the NHL. As far as my status, it’s really up to Darcy and the direction they’re going to go so that’s a conversation we’re going to have to have and it’s a conversation that unfortunately I’m not going to share with you guys because it’s just going to be something that’s going to have to happen down the road”

Miller knows he could still be here and he’s OK with that.

“I’m not trying to jump to any conclusions, I’m just trying to be open to the opportunity and if it’s to be in Buffalo, I’ve been a Sabre my whole career and it’s somewhere where I like to be and that’s great and if it’s somewhere else then I’m going to have to accept it.” Miller added. “If I’m here, it’s a great organization, they want to win. Everybody wants to win, but we have great resources here and good people.”
