Regier: Sabres veterans on the spot


‘"I think our fans like watching players like Derek Roy, Thomas Vanek, Jason Pominville, Ryan Miller, Patrick Kaleta and Paul Gaustad," Regier said. "The fans appreciate what those players bring. They know we missed the playoffs two years in a row after going to the conference final twice in a row. We’re not a young team but we are continuing to develop this group of players. We’re pushing hard for them to grow together and care for each other, take responsibility for themselves and their teammates."’
