That's simply not true.

Although I don't think Lou would deal with Darcy. Regier is notorious for only doing deals he feels he "wins". He has to rip the other team off.

I know back in the early 2000's, Calgary proposed Jerome Iginla + 3rd for Michael Peca. Darcy refused, and demanded Jerome Iginla + Toni Lydman. Calgary kept Iginla, the Sabres traded Peca for Tim Connolly + Taylor Pyatt (who both left via UFA) and later traded a 3rd for Lydman.

I know Brian Burke said [paraphrasing] "Darcy is a good friend of mine personally but I can't stand to deal with him professionally."

The consensus here in Buffalo is that it's only a matter of time before Darcy is fired. Hopefully their next GM is more reasonable.

Lou is a classical kind of guy, I can't recall him ever making a deal with Darcy. He's probably on Lou's blacklist.
