What Direction For The Sabres

from Bucky Gleason of the Buffalo News,

...And that brings us to Campbell, who is one of several players who personified the Sabres’ direction in the post-lockout NHL. His price tag increased again Friday when he was named an All-Star for the second straight season. A few days ago, Campbell said that he’s finished talking about money.

Presumably, that meant with the Sabres, too.

It’s why General Manager Darcy Regier needs to find out what he can get, while he can get it, and minimize the damage. Chicago and Phoenix are two teams loaded with prospects and looking to make the playoffs. Dallas is anxious to make a bold move. Vancouver needs a player or two who can push them toward the top.

Once the Sabres’ brain trust gets past the idea that Campbell is gone, once they embrace another couple years of retooling, moving Afinogenov becomes easier. He’s a pretty player during the regular season, pretty darned ugly in the playoffs with 10 goals and 23 points in 49 career games.
