Losing center Derek Roy is the last thing the reeling Sabres needed.“Derek's going to be out for a little bit of time,” Buffalo coach Lindy Ruff told reporters after his team lost to Carolina 4-2 Friday night.The Sabres are 2-6-1 in their last nine, 3-7-2 in their last 12 and 8-13-4 since Nov. 12. The good news: Returning injured defenseman Tyler Myers and wounded forwards Ville Leino and Nathan Gerbe to active duty ought to help some.General manager Darcy Regier hopes to see improvement from within. He is exploring trade possibilities, but not without much urgency. "At this time of the year and where we are, I've done a lot of talking to teams around the league, so I'm aware of some of those situations,” Regier told the Buffalo News. “Right now there's nothing imminent, and that's part of the business. We'll keep working.”The News asked if Regier needs to jostle his languishing team with a trade or two.“I wouldn't call it a shake-up,” Regier said. “If there's a move that makes sense for us, we'll do it if something is going to improve our hockey club. There's nothing imminent, as I said, right now.”Roy joins key defensemen Andrej Sekera and Christian Ehrhoff on the injury list. “I actually thought we were coming out of the hole here until Derek's injury,” Regier told the News. “We're getting some guys back, but when you're missing two guys, Sekera and Ehrhoff, on the back end, it seems that we're somewhere between five injuries and nine. But that's part of it, too. I still go back to if we can get to where we're finishing better, getting more scoring, getting secondary scoring, that will go a long ways to helping us.”
