Miller: 20-13-4, .918 SV%. Still not good enough for most people.
Enroth: 4-5-2, .909 SV%

Despite closing the season strong, Sabres finish 9th and miss the playoffs by one point. Management blames a midseason 2-7-1 streak on injuries to forwards, even though anyone can see that forward corps was perilously thin entering the season. Neither Regier nor Ruff are terminated at season's end.

Grigorenko: 10-15-25
Ennis: 14-22-36
Stafford: 17-14-31
Foligno: 9-14-23
Hodgson: 14-18-32
Poms: 18-21-39
Vanek: 20-18-38
Ehrhoff: 7-16-23
Myers: 6-16-22

Continuing the trend from last year of moving guys who aren't under contract after this season, Regier trades both of his impending UFA defensemen at the trade deadline even though the Sabres are still in the playoff race.

Leopold is traded to St. Louis for a 2014 2nd rounder.
Regehr is traded to San Jose for a 2013 2nd rounder and a 2014 3rd rounder.

Steve Ott runs Tuukka Rask in Buffalo. Bedlam ensues, but John Scott is tucked away on the bench. When he skates the next shift, he cannot find a willing combatant. People rip Darcy for signing someone who won't fight that much.
