Briere and Drury were during a contending year. It would've been stupid to trade them at the deadline.

Tallinder and Lydman were during the division winning year. It would've been dumb to get rid of them.

Very true though he did get astronomical value for Brian Campbell and Paul Gaustad. From those two alone he received a kings ransom... 1st round pick that turned out to be Tyler Ennis, Steve Bernier who was turned into two picks which became Raffi Torres rental and Brayden McNabb. Gaustad essentially turned into Girgensons.

So when the two trades were all said and done we turned two impending UFAS into a young,proven top 6 scoring center (Ennis), a future top 4 physical dman (McNabb), and a future captain/shutdown physical center, which we haven't had since Peca. And also the failed Torres rental. It doesn't make up for the other failed opportunities but when Regier did move 2 of his most prominent UFAs to be, he received a kings ransom for them. Ennis, McNabb and Girgensons should be 3 important pieces to our team for the next 10 years. Campbell and Gaustad will be retired within 5 years or so.

I think his only failures in capitalizing on UFAs to be were Satan, and Zhitnik.

I was not happy about how that went down one bit. Zhitnik had been my favorite player for a while, it hurt to see him walk for nothing. Satan and Zhitnik both had solid value at the time (especially deadline value) and could've gotten a good return.

As someone who's only watched since 2004, how did Regier handle proceedings last time the Sabres were clearly not in the playoff race?

Buffalo traded Vaclav Varada and a 5th round pick in 2003 to Ottawa for Jakub Klepis
Buffalo traded Chris Gratton and a 4th round pick in 2004 to Phoenix for Daniel Briere and a 3rd round pick in 2004.
Buffalo trades Rob Ray to Ottawa for future considerations.
Buffalo trades Stu Barnes to Dallas for Mike Ryan and a 2nd round pick
