‘”The goal was when we evaluated our team, we knew that we had to get better and get better in the event if it meant taking a minor step back, then we were prepared to do it,” Regier said. “It still allows us a run at the playoffs — we are all aware of the odds against us — but I think with Cody coming in, he will give us a good boost in the offensive side. We certainly lose Gaus’ competitiveness, his size and thickness and his ability to play against the other team’s top line, but we really felt going forward, with his pending unrestricted free agency, we needed to address the center position, the offense and the opportunity to get a young man like Cody.”‘
