‘“It’s fun when you feel that things work out,” Regier said Saturday after the Sabres picked the last of their eight prospects. “It’s important for us to pay to get Myers [giving up a 2009 third-round pick to move up from No. 13], just because of the drop we thought [there was]. There’s still very good players after Myers, but we just felt there was a pretty good drop there, and he was somebody that we identified that would fit very well with our hockey club. We saw a lot of upside in his game. We wanted to pay the price to get him.”’
