from John Vogl of the Buffalo News,
Regier sees a bottleneck in the trade market but expects it to release.
"There’s things going on in the background, but I think what happens is teams generally have an order in which they would like to acquire players, so the players in front have to drop before the other moves take place," he said. "It’s bottlenecked right now, but I think it’ll open up as we get closer to Wednesday."
Regier declined comment regarding his players with no-movement clauses, specifically captain Jason Pominville and goaltender Ryan Miller. Pominville can submit a list of eight teams he would not want to be traded to, and he said today he has not been asked for a list.
