These videos are fantastic, I've really loved the two draft related ones they've done. Wish they were longer. Also becomes clear that the rumoured trade up to 5 was in order to get Ristolainen, making the 2013 draft that much sweeter.
Im not making any problem, its just a fact that since Regier has been GM there has been no one I can call captain. Everyone is Captain for a couple years and gone.
Give me a captain for 5-6+ years. Its not really about Pominville, is about the Sabres identity. If you dont think leadership has been a problem for this team while Regier was GM then I dont know what team you have been watching.
People say its not a big deal, IMO its EVERYTHING wrong with Regier's rosters. Lack of leadership.
