Last week you #suffered along with us as we explored three reasons why “Darcy Regier just can’t be fired… yet.”
This week we’re following that up with the crowd pleaser. We’re presenting three reasons why Darcy can and should be given the axe today, each of which based on the entirety of his tenure, and not just this historically woeful season.
Have a seat, Darcy!
I’m convinced we’re all witnessing the worst season in Sabres history. We’re currently being eviscerated by the Ducks, 5-1, in the 2nd, and I’m pretty sure that we’re about -97 in Corsi but leading in hits.
I just don’t know what to say anymore. But I have a video here that can help express how I feel.
Take it away, Cody.
YOU TELL IT LIKE IT IS, CODY! Feel better, anyone? No? Well, I tried.
Well at least Grigorenko scored.
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).
How in the name of ye olde hockey gods did we actually beat the San Jose Sharks last night/this morning?

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).
