Regier resurfaces

Sabres General Manager Darcy Regier resurfaced Monday after going under cover since the end of the NHL's regular season. In a press conference called only a few hours before the news conference, Regier  said the Sabres were trying to sign Jaroslav Spacek, their top-scoring defenseman from last season, before he became a free agent July 1.

He also said South Buffalo's Tim Kennedy and defenseman Tyler Myers, last year's No. 1 draft pick, might be ready for full-time duty in the NHL.

The Sabres have the 13th pick in the first round Friday in the NHL draft. Should they try to trade up to get one of the top two or three picks to get an NHL-ready player to add to their stable of prospects? Should they use the pick on a forward and if so, should they draft specifically for size? Is bringing back Spacek a good idea or should they try to spend the money on an upgrade in the free-agent market?

What are your priorities and how do they differ from GM for a Day Bucky Gleason's priorities?
