I expect that is Pegula's time frame.

I think Regier and Ruff get this year plus two more.

So, if they aren't A LOT better by the end of 2013-14 and Vanek, Pominville, and Miller are headed to UFA, that is when the TNT might be planted to blow things up.

I think they should get this year plus 14 more. And if the Sabres are still Cup-less in 2026, Pegula and Black can re-evaluate.

It sure sounded like an insult when Brian Burke said last month that Darcy Regier is "really unreasonable" while talking trades. The Toronto general manager said Saturday that wasn't case.

Burke has not chatted with Buffalo's GM since saying the two talk different languages about players during trade conversations. The silence shouldn't be interpreted as hard feelings.

"It wasn't a shot at him anyhow," Burke said after the board of governors meeting. "It's just like trying to make a trade with a guy that's speaking Persian and you're speaking English. We made one trade, we made the Dominic Moore trade, so we made one trade. Some guys are trading partners and some guys aren't.

"I could never get on the same page with him as far as what players are worth, which means one of two things: Either he's [messed] up or I'm [messed] up. Or maybe we're both [messed] up."

Burke used a loud profanity rather than "messed," drawing laughs and attention from nearby observers.

I think that was an exaggeration...
