3 Reasons Why Ya Can’t Fire Regier…Yet

Darcy Regier was fired last night.

In your dreams.

But when you woke up, he was still here, and when you hopped on the Twitters, you saw that he squashed the Pominville Welcome Back Show that the organization had put together. That’s some weird unreasonable grandpa/dictator stuff going on there.

You want him gone. You want something new. Something with a clear agenda coming into the rebuild. Unfortunately, you’re screwed, because there are 3 big reasons ya just can’t get hang him by his old hockey skates yet.

Don't fret, Jason. You're still big in our hockey hearts (and in our record books).buffalosabresnation.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/Pominville-Regier-300x189.jpg 300w" sizes="(max-width: 486px) 100vw, 486px" />

Identity Crisis.

Traditionally, when we think about who the Sabres are as a team, we think speed, and we think skill. We think of names like Perreault, LaFontaine, Barnes and Hasek, Drury/Briere, Pominville, and Vanek.

The roots of that identity go way back – all the way to the team’s inception. To brand the team, the Knoxes chose for a name-the-team contest. “Sabres” was chosen because Seymour Knox felt that a sabre, a weapon carried by a leader, could be used effectively on both offense and defense. Makes sense, and makes for a great identity (and one great uniform).

Beautiful.
