You mean the same guy who didn't have a conservative approach in the past?

Right.

Uh, how? He's a UFA in 8 days. What team would trade for his rights now?

Well if Sutter was still in town he may have a point.

I'm pretty sure players rights have been traded as late as the draft and even afterwards in the past.

I'm not saying it can't happen. I'm simply saying that it wouldn't make any damn sense. TC is not exactly a hot commodity.

Well we should know that a dman should be going back the other way... Probably Butler. We would just have too many dmen if regehr comes in and nobody departs.

With the center market what it is he currently stands as the Brad Richards consolation prize though. And probably at about half the cap.

... wish we had this guy 3 seasons ago...
I havent seen more than a handful of Calgary games over the last couple of seasons
What's his health been like in the past few campaigns? - @4 mil for 2 seasons- he's gotta be an upgrade over Morrission.

Its a brave new world- lets see how this shakes out!!

This.

The center market is so weak, TC is the second best center on the market. And the Flames have a need down the middle.

I think you're overvaluing him if you think he's the #2 UFA center out there.

Good thing we're building a new lockerroom. Need the extra space for Regehr's ears. Looks like Dumbo on skates. Sheeesh.

he missed 11 games in the last 3 season combined and he's an upgrade over everyone not named Myers.

12) Where will Brad Richards sign? [One guess] Buffalo

19) As of August 15, 2011, will Andrej Sekera still be in the Sabres organization? No

BONUS questions:

21) Who will be the Sabres biggest trade acquisition? Robyn Regehr
http://hfboards.com/showthread.php?t=926831&page=2

One half of a dream come true IMO - Regehr would be an amazing acquisition on so many levels. If the "red" scenario comes to fruition, all I want is the other half in blue and I'd feel better about the Sabres heading into a season than I have for the past 6 years.

Amen, brother...he's a top 2 defenseman every season and $4M is cheap for such.

That's exactly what I wondered - for a premium player to waive his NTC, it would reinforce the notion that past negativity about the city and organization have rapidly changed for the better and bodes well that such a reputation would not be as big an obstacle as most of us fear it will be with Richards....although every person is different and what suits Regehr doesn't automatically apply to Richards.

I think getting Regehr is great for Myers, and great for the attempt to sign Richards... but he is NOT who he was 2-3 years ago.

I really... really hope this is Rivet 2.0 (only time will tell)

(honest: I didn't watch a lot of Calgary last year)
By most Flames' fans accounts on their board, whenever responding to trade proposals on Regehr, they emphasize that he had one of his best seasons last year.

And, for all the confidence we have in a 31-year old Richards being a contributor, Regehr is no older.

I doubt that - I have to think that, in targeting Regehr, Ruff and Regier value not only his veteran experience but his tough, physical style of play. With Weber the only existing Sabre that plays that way, giving him up to get Regehr doesn't bolster that trait amongst a blueline heavy on finesse and offensive skill.

He's obviously entrenched in Calgary as a lifelong Flame but he also has to see the writing on the wall: he, Iginla and Kiprusoff as their core have been together for a long time and haven't gotten any younger or closer to winning the Cup in 7 years.

I'd be surprised if another roster player from Calgary were involved - frankly, other than Giordano and Iginla, there isn't anyone else I'd want or see helping Buffalo (including the overrated Bouwmeester).

My gut feeling - the swap will be older defenseman (Regehr) for a younger defenseman (most likely Sekera, possibly Butler) and maybe a draft pick from Buffalo's end. The Flames can't take on much salary and losing a top 4 defenseman will leave a hole that they similarly can't replace cheaply through free agency.

Now all we need is for Bryz to sign at 7 mil per today and the boards will officially explode.

Compared to Connolly's chrome-dome, it's not that different

God help us - all that does is eat up more cap space that should be used on Richards (or another # 1 center)

As a die hard flames fan, cant say Im excited about this, he was our best D last year, solid physical player, consistent, and actually has a hell of a shot when he uses it, ended up with more points then Bo. Whether see Bo go. Interview with Crosby last year, asked what one person does he hate playing against in the NHL, and thats Reggie.

Regehr took a home town discount to stay and this is what we do . I cant see a D coming back, we need a centre or offence, preferably someone with some creativity. No offence but hope he stays, OR this deal was just too good to give up.
