Darcy Regier has his critics.
As general manager of the Buffalo Sabres, it comes with the turf.

Regier met the singer a few years ago when Elton was performing at First Niagara Center. The first question he asked was whether the entertainer was a fan of hockey and, more specifically, the Buffalo Sabres.
Elton’s reply? “I was, until you traded Pat LaFontaine."
