Briere was happy in Buffalo and was willing to sign for a discount (over what he got in Philly). For that reason alone, Regier should have been fired - even if it was his failure to get management to understand what was in the best interest of the franchise.
I'd bet Darcy saw it the same way. Doesn't mean Quinn/Golisano did.
