Not only would that have put a fresh voice and perspective into the Sabres' decision-making process but, inherently, the security blanket Regier has been comforting himself with the past 15 years would have been removed. And, if Regier can't bring the team to the next step in his personnel choices, Dudley would be ready to step in.
It would be an untenable situation. All it would do is commence the When Will Regier be Fired watch. Gleason would dedicate a weekly piece to why Darcy should be brushed aside in favor of Dudley. If they ever bring in Dudley, it would have to be after Regier was dismissed.
