Do you think Regier will have any Sabre-specific UFA signings once Friday comes?
I only expect a two-way signing or two for Rochester, in addition to the previously-signaled-by-Darcy, our hero, Matt Ellis.
I do not expect Briere, nor anyone else signed, and don't expect Miller or Vanek either moved or extended right away, either, and certainly not on 7/1.
I don't expect anything earth shattering... but I do expect at least 1 of the 2 short term needs to be addressed...
1. vet, 3rd line center
- to compete with Larsson, Porter, Girgensons for the 2 bottom 6 center spots (Hodgson/Grigorenko at the top, Ennis to wing).
2. vet, depth defensemen
- to compete with McNabb, Ruhwedel, Ristolainen, (McBain) for the bottom pair and #7/#8 spots. Ehrhoff, Myers, Weber, Pysyk is the top 4 IMO. Some may consider this to be McBain's role... I'd like a bit more competition
