Well, that didn't take long, did it? Had Darcy Regier even hung up the phone before Miroslav Satan came to terms with the New York Islanders, receiving more than the Sabres were willing to pay him, casting doubt on whether Buffalo's front office has a handle on the NHL's newfangled marketplace? The Sabres miscalculated, and they miscalculated badly. They should have signed Satan to the qualifying offer of $3.8 million and then, if they were so inclined, dangled him as trade bait. They should have realized that the value of players who can skate and shoot had expanded, or at least held fast, now that the league is welcoming back the days when the Yvan Cournoyers sizzled up and down the wing unimpeded. Which overlaps with Regier's playing days, by the way.
