As for the Hecht-bashing, Ruff already said he has a reduced role to start, but obviously future slumps/injuries could impact this, and I thought I saw on Twitter that Hecht averaged something like 17 goals and 71 games per season before his injury problems last year. That's totally worth the $1 million, 1-year deal and you're not going to find a better deal in the UFA market.
Read somewhere that Hecht is 20th in Sabres games played, goals, and assists. To be 20th in goals and assists while 20th in games means your production is not shabby, especially considering he's a player best not evaluated purely by offensive production.
