The Sabres Observer
A piece today from The Fourth Period featured the Flyers and what GM Paul Holmgren has been up to as the Wednesday trade deadline approaches.
Per Darren Dreger of TSN,
Patrick Caisse of French-Canadian media outlet TVA Sports is reporting a development involving Jason Pominville.
In celebration of the "holiday", here's a 3-minute April Fools' Day clip from a Sabres telecast in 1985. Sabres broadcaster and former player Mike Robitaille and legendary NHL referee Bruce Hood break out the latest technology, and Pete Weber (currently the play-by-play voice of the Nashville Predators) discusses the art of hooking with Greg (father of Ryan) Malone.
Darcy Regier met with the media in the press box just before Buffalo's shootout loss to the Capitals last night and was asked about his mindset going forward with Thomas Vanek, Ryan Miller and Jason Pominville.
Listening to numerous Regier interviews over the years has made it pretty easy on occasion to foretell the future, and the implied message here was clear: It’s practically a foregone conclusion that at least one of those three players will become an ex-Sabre sometime between now and September.
Daren Millard of Sportsnet reported on twitter just over an hour ago that the Sabres and Lightning are in trade talks, and Ryan Miller's name is being discussed.
Dan Rosen of NHL.com went into detail today about the state of the Sabres and Darcy Regier's agenda for next week's trade deadline.
We've been seeing plenty of names on Buffalo's roster reported in trade talks, but not much has been mentioned in the way of whom they'd like to get back.
An aritcle this morning did indeed bring up the name of a promising young prospect attracting interest from the Sabres.
SportsBusiness Journal has released a report detailing regional and national television ratings for U.S.-based NHL clubs, and the Sabres once again are near the top of the heap.
In this edition of Sabres Observer Radio, I debate with Joe Pinzone the possibility that Darcy Regier may be forced to adjust his thinking on the trade deadline.
We're joined on the show by beat writer Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald, and we finish things off with a little fun talking about a Buffalo News column from Sunday that called for 15 former Sabres to be given jobs in the hockey department.
