Interesting Sabres draft facts about Regier's tenure from Bakes draft preview.

Quote:

For the second straight year and third time since 2001, Darcy Regier's scouting staff enters the draft with four picks in the top-60.

*In 2012, the four picks were converted into three players - Mikhail Grigorenko (12th), Zemgus Girgensons (14th), and Jake McCabe (44th)
*In 2001, the picks were used to select Jiri Novotny (22nd), Derek Roy (32nd), Chris Thorburn (50th), and Jason Pominville (55th)
Quote:

For the second straight year and fourth time since 2002, Regier's scouting staff enters with two first-round picks.

*2012 - Grigorenko (12th), Girgensons (traded up from #21 to select at #14)
*2008 - Tyler Myers (12th), Tyler Ennis (26th)
*2002 - Keith Ballard (11th), Daniel Paille (20th)
Quote:

For just the second-time ever, the Regier regime holds a top-10 draft pick (2003, Thomas Vanek, 5th overall)
Quote:

The Sabres under Darcy Regier (1997-present):

*have selected 136 players, with 54 of them appearing in the NHL (39.7%)
*drafted and developed 16 of the 30 players who wore the Sabres uniform in 2012-13
*have selected a player from the OHL in every single draft
*have never selected a player out of the BCHL, an established NCAA feeder
*have worked four drafts where they haven't selected a G (1998, 2001, 2008, 2010)

I'm too lazy right now to do it myself; want to see where these figures stand when juxtaposed with other GMs/orgs, preferably some who've had longer tenured General managers.

It makes me somewhat optimistic to see what he's done in previous similar situations (4 top 60 picks and 2 first rounders), particularly the years with Devine at the helm.

Of the ones off the top of my head:

Lamoriello - New Jersey (Not entirely too sure)
McPhee - Washington

are the ones I think have been there as long or longer.

I think Rutherford was there longer also, but not sure if I'm right.

Comparing the Sabres and Predators would be interesting given the Preds' stability at coach and GM mirroring the Sabres'....

This would be a good year for Darcy to take perhaps a couple European league players for a change. I'm rather hoping #8 will be one, whether Lindholm or Ristolainen.

You're looking at Lamoriello, Rutherford, McPhee, Poile and Holland for comparison then.
