Regier's moves a sign of the times

Via: Buffalo News

'The Sabres were willing to trade the 6-foot-4, 220-pound Gratton, wonderfully skilled and dominant when willing, for a 5-10, 178-pound Daniel Briere in a swap of centers and draft picks. Briere plays bigger than Gratton around the net. He's stronger mentally. He's also more consistent and cheaper and, at 25, two years younger.'
