How terrible.
Regier has been the GM of the Amerks for many season dating back to 1997. Is it any coincidence that the Amerks last won the Calder Cup in 1996?

But his tenure is hard to judge since the late 90's and early 2000's Donner was still signing his own players.

Could Darcy trump Devine and go out and sign a player? I'm sure. But do we know that Devine has asked for that, or that Devine hasn't suggested they just have to ride out the injuries? We don't.
Agreed here. Devine could be just as much of a problem. I think a solution could be putting Jody Gage back in charge.
