The Sabres Observer

Nick Kypreos of Sportsnet gave Sabres fans and media plenty to talk about last night with his comments that GM Darcy Regier's long tenure may be coming to an end, going so far as saying the Sabres "ultimately will make the change", probably before Christmas.
Today, however, Kypreos appeared to try to douse the flames of speculation on the Hockey Central At Noon radio show.
"I never said anything's imminent," Kypreos said. "I never said that this is happening. That's an insider that basically talks about things that we're hearing and what's out there. I think that people are under the impression that I was reporting that this was gonna happen, and that was not the case."
Regier has been the GM of the Sabres since 1997, and has come under fire for his management of a club that has not won a playoff series since 2007.
