YOUR limit with Darcy?
 
There are people who want Darcy gone. There are those who give him every benefit of the doubt. And then there's everybody along the entire spectrum in between.

The lack of depth at center and inability to win face-offs so far this year are inexcusable. Most trades Darcy makes address one aspect of the team at the expense of another. He has proven for years to lack the deft hand to make a significant impact on the roster.

What is your limit with Darcy? He is the longest serving GM in Sabres history. What will it take for Darcy Regier to be released as general manager of the Sabres? How much more time should he be given to succeed, however you define success? Even the most ardent Darcy supporters MUST have a limit....or do they?

Finding a competent GM is much harder than a competent coach. If Regier can find a way to not deconstruct our team while getting some pieces, He'll be better.

Damn.

He knows, everyone

sabresEH 01-27-2013 07:40 PM

In the pegula era he has done quite well. Other than the leino signing there isnt much to be mad about. Kassian for hodgy was a good trade imo. Even if Kassian ends up a stud how much will it really hurt us? We'll see kass 2 times a year for the rest of his career unless we meet up with vancouver in the finals or van trades him out east. I'd like to see what he does in the off season with the compliance buyouts and what not. Give him another season and if we miss the playoffs next year and our team doesnt look like we have a briht future than fire him. But if he flips vanek for some youth, has another good draft and this team looks like it has a bright future than keep him.

Did you play dress up as a kid? :laugh:



Darcy has made some real idiotic moves thru the years. Maybe it was because of ownership. Maybe it was a blunder all on him.

Darcy has made some real awesome moves thru the years. Maybe it was because of ownership. Maybe it was his savviness as a GM.


Overall, I don't think he sucks. But he certainly isn't among the top 5 either. His biggest weakness is his undying dedication to Ruff. The "Darcy is married to certain players" claim used to carry some weight pre-Pegula. But with Roy, Gaustad, and others gone, that claim isn't so credible anymore. :dunno:

Yes, because winning teams make knee jerk 5-game reactions. That's a great way to get trade leverage, let the league see your desperation.

Would you rather they keep losing and get a higher draft pick?
I guess I'd be in favor of that too.:huh:

Top Pair Imposter 01-27-2013 09:02 PM

I'd like to see a different coach take a run at this roster. On paper, it should be a contender in a year or two talent-wise.

I don't root for my team to lose.

FearTheBeard 01-27-2013 09:18 PM

D'arcy is fine I'd like him to stay

I'm not rooting for em to lose either. But you're not gonna win with this current roster. It's that simple. I see no other option than to trade for a veteran/face off winning Center. If they don't, they're going to lose. Just tired of losing...Constantly.

Rasmus Reichel 01-27-2013 09:46 PM

I like him but if he's gotta go to get ruff out of here than so be it

Fire Lindy 01-27-2013 09:55 PM

Darcy will have my full respect if he ever shows he has the balls to can Lindy.

VaporTrail 01-28-2013 01:56 AM

I can't stand D'arse and I wanted him fired years ago....I can't believe all these panic threads and posts already....The season is 5 games old...Give him, and the youngsters on our team a break......It's obvious he's not going anywhere soon b/c Pegula just signed him to an extension.....

Chill out, and give it more than 5 games to let these kids develop, and this team to gel.

Workensons 01-28-2013 02:33 AM

I think highly of our GM. I think lowly of the effort of the team he's crafted.

sba 01-28-2013 02:39 AM

Darcy's adapting. Picking Grigorenko, trading a top prospect for Hodgson...he's trying different things. I'm fine with him as well.

Now we go to our newest hockey analyst Ollie Williams. Ollie what do you think of the Sabres?

They gonna lose!

Thanks Ollie.

Jim Bob 01-28-2013 03:27 AM

I'm ready to jump on the fire everyone bandwagon if this team misses the playoffs again....

wunderpanda 01-28-2013 03:53 AM

He has been doing a good job for years. Sabres were competitive with owners that refused to spend big money and Darcy cobbled together a decent team with a solid core. Now that he has Pegula, he's brought in alot of talent. Ehrhoff, Leino, Ott, Sulzer, Regehr, Leopold, Hodgson were free agents or trades and we are deep with prospects.

I'm sure he would have grabbed a centre if not for the lockout and I expect he still will.

Moskau 01-28-2013 05:45 AM

If RoR gets traded to an eastern conference team (likely if he is traded) and it's not to Buffalo I will flip my ****. Other than that I'd like to see this team with a different coach first.

A contender for what, 7th or 8th place?

In regards to Darcy, I suspect the extension was given before the season started for the scenario that this team again disappoints this season. It will be easier to retain him, as opposed to signing him to an extenstion coming off another crap season.

What do you give up for ROR though.

Chainshot 01-28-2013 08:50 AM

I thought he should've been removed several times since his tenure began. I'm not impressed with him overall and his marriage to his coach is another piece of ballast as far as I'm concerned.
