‘General Manager Darcy Regier revealed to The Buffalo News he had contacted the Chicago Blackhawks about trading the No. 1 choice so the Sabres could select South Buffalo native Patrick Kane. “I talked to them to ask them what they were going to do, whether they were going to select or trade,” Regier said. “They felt they were going to select, so I’ll leave it at that. I’m not going to comment further. It was a good conversation. That’s all.”’
