Gee, he's not piggy-backing the Dave Davis report is he? Sabres and Kings? Regehr?
Where could he have found this information. Oh, wait...

Well, here's an indisputable truth for you: the Sabres and Kings have been checking each other out a lot lately.
The Sabres have had a scouting presence at Staples Center for most Kings games over the past couple of weeks, more so than in other Western Conference buildings (just two examples, but they haven't been in Detroit or Columbus recently).
L.A., along with Vancouver, Chicago, Dallas, Edmonton, Colorado, and five Eastern Conference teams, had scouts at FNC last night for Buffalo's 3-1 win over the Rangers.
I've learned that the gentleman from the Kings is responsible for covering all of the Canadian teams plus the Sabres and Penguins. While there were numerous alternatives last night with games taking place involving Pittsburgh, Vancouver, Edmonton, Toronto and Winnipeg, he was in Buffalo watching the Sabres.
When I first mentioned the mutual Sabres-Kings infatuation on Monday, I was asked by some readers and twitter followers which players are being discussed. I'm just not in a good place to be throwing out names on my own, so this is the part where I won't pretend to know more than the Dregers and LeBruns of the world. I do know that a few mainstream outlets have hinted that the Kings like Robyn Regehr, but it's a safe bet that most contending teams like him.
It would suck not to have a pick in the first two rounds this year. Maybe 2014 draft, or try and package in a 4th with a prospect. I doubt that Buffalo would do this then though.
What did Calgary get for Regehr?
