As I've said for weeks, Regier had a terrible summer. We were fortunate to get Grigs, he made a nice move to get Girgs, he traded Roy to much applause from the fanbase, and then he called it a summer. He thought a non-playoff team didn't need any other work beyond those moves and to have a little more fortune on the injury front. He failed to recognize why we were successful down the stretch--the three center approach of Hodgson-Roy-Ennis worked well--and then broke that up and did nothing to remedy it. Our bottom-6 sucks, and he sat idle while good veteran role players went off the board to other teams.

Now, we're hurting the development of arguably the organization's most prized asset, guys have been taken out of roles that best suit their talents--e.g., Stafford as a shutdown, two-way forward? Ehrhoff as a shutdown defenseman? Ennis, for a time, being used as the shutdown center?--and this team is a bunch of mismatched parts. That all falls on the GM.

I had frequently defended Darcy in the past. He's made some nice moves on paper. But this isn't working anymore. It's time for a new set of eyes at the top.
