That's right. Forget about tomorrow (Tuesday July 1st) as a day that your team will get better. Darcy might try to make a splash by signing a UFA, but his bid will fall far short of what other ravenous teams out there will be offering.
Wait for Wednesday and Thursday to arrive, when the big money is off the table, and the Tier 2 UFA's are still around. I'm forecasting that's when Darcy will be really active, with either bringing in new free agents, or with some trades.
Darcy has goods for trading (prospects, veteran players, etc) and cap space to work with. We have loads of NHL-ready wingers and forwards. I expect Darcy to do some things this week, but nothing big on Tuesday.
So for all of you Canadiens (or hockey crazed Americans) who are taking off work tomorrow....if you are a Sabres fan, don't waste your vacation time. Save it for Wed or Thurs!
