If they were about winning the Calder Cup as THE goal in Rochester, then they should hire someone like Jody as the Amerks GM and give that person the same resources that Regier has in Buffalo to build a winner.
But I don't see it as one or the other. The goal can be both to develop prospects for the Sabres and to win a Calder Cup. No NHL team has enough prospects turning pro each season to have a full roster of prospects. Draft well, sign your prospects, sign the absolute best veterans out there up until the max allowed. You're at least going to compete for a championship that way.
