Sabres ahead of the game — again

'And anywhere outside of New Jersey, GM Darcy Regier is the best in the league at playing the cards he's been dealt. They're different, more expensive cards this year, but everyone in the NHL still likes the hand. The Sabres were well ahead of the new-reality curve in 2005, and by absorbing a financial hit in Briere and rejecting one in Dumont, they're proving that they're still ahead.'
