Let the rebuild begin

By Miguel Rodriguez

Sabres General Manager Darcy Regier spoke with News Sports Reporter John Vogl an hour ago regarding the decision to trade Robyn Regehr to the L.A. Kings.

Among Regier's comments was this interesting nugget to keep in mind as Wednesday's 3 p.m. trade deadline nears.

"We have to be realistic about where we are and the direction we’re going,” Regier said. “And in this case, it was important to take advantage of getting draft picks and to use those draft picks to build.”

“We indicated to (Regehr) that we were going to look toward next season and we’re really going to look toward building this team not just to move it into the playoffs but to go deep into the playoffs,” Regier said. “No one is quite sure of the timeline but we’re certainly going to focus on next season.”
