Darcy Regier Needs To Be Replaced

from Bucky Gleason of the Buffalo News, Darcy Regier didn’t want to use the R-word while announcing that Jason Pominville had been traded to Minnesota for two prospects and two draft picks Wednesday.

Now Do You Believe?

It seems like such a cliché to start something about Jason Pominville with Game 5 of the Ottawa series in the 2006 playoffs.  But really where else can something about Jason Pominville begin?  There are very few people in Buffalo who can’t vividly recall Pominville skating around Daniel Alfredsson, Jay McKee flying out of the penalty box, and Rick Jeanneret bellowing his now...
