'The good news is that nine players who skated against Dallas in those 1999 Finals still are Sabres — Barnes, Curtis Brown, Jay McKee, James Patrick, Rob Ray, Miroslav Satan, Vaclav Varada, Warrener and Alexei Zhitnik. The bad news is that several of the holdovers probably should be retired or playing somewhere else and two of the departed players were the heart and soul of the franchise — Dominik Hasek and Michael Peca.'
