If Vanek and Miller are both still Sabres after the draft, Darcy will have put the target on his back. I'm not saying fire him the next day, but get very skeptical. We all know his weakness is hanging on to his own players because they're too precious to let go. Neither one of those guys has any place being on a rebuilding team, this is the deepest draft in years, and their price tags will never be higher. The iron is hot. Every day you get closer to the ends of their contracts is less value in those two.

If he hangs on to them, he puts the pressure on himself to do something brilliant and really rock this rebuild. Because all the conventional wisdom says move your star players and stock up on blue chip prospects while the iron is hot. If he fails to do this and doesn't have a far shrewder plan up his sleeve, I say he's very fireable.
