When asked about his approach to signing #1 RFA Tomas Vanek, Darcy Regier held firm.
“I don’t believe in operating out of fear,” said Regier. “Tomas is a Restricted Free Agent and will have a market value that we’ll go from there.”
Interesting stance by Darcy but I can;’t say I’m surprised. It’s going to take a $4million plus offer to get Vanek out of Buffalo and I would bet that Regier might like the idea of the 3 first round picks.
All those high picks would go along way towards Buffalo staying competitive for the long term.
Rumor has it that it’s a lock for Vanek to get an offer or two. It will be interesting!
