Regier talks about Regehr, Kotalik

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- The Sabres pushed hard to convince Robyn Regehr to come to Buffalo, with Darcy Regier and Terry Pegula making strong sales pitches. It worked.

Regehr has been acquired along with former Sabres forward Ales Kotalik and a second-round pick in the 2012 NHL entry draft in exchange for defenseman Chris Butler and center Paul Byron. Regier thinks Kotalik, who bounced between the Flames and the AHL, is still an NHL player and will compete for a spot on the Sabres' roster.

Regier said he has no plans to buy out Kotalik or any other Sabres player. The audio of his chat is below.
