I find it hard to believe Darcy would be lame enough to only field a one year deal.

I believe it. Half-hearted effort to see if he'll bite. We'll have at least one more prospect up to fit on the roster in another year. And Briere will be 37. Shot in the dark to see if he might.

Due diligence.

That is self-generating here. Doesn't matter what DR does.

PTR

People complaining about Darcy definitely gets old, but not as old as people complaining about people complaining about Darcy like it isn't justified.

…especially on Thursday, hint, hint.

Briere said wants to go to a team that has a chance to win a cup within the next two years . I doubt that he will select Buffalo as a destination.

Looks like the #48 Sabres Jerseys will stay in moth balls:
@Real_ESPNLeBrun I believe the final 3 on Briere are the Devils, Predators and Habs

B+.....you had a chance to use some alliteration there......I would have gone with Pete Provolone. And WTF does Ted Black need to be there for? Does he hold up the speakerphone for Terry in Boca?

Ted's there to pick up the bill for lunch. We all know Darcy's cheap.

While I'll admit that I am not familiar with the Chop House, but it seems to me that if you are wining and dining a UFA target you would go with bigger artillary.

Santasiero's wouldn't be open either....... I like SFNS's take.....Darcy probably flew Danny in from Philly on a USAir puddlejumper super saver on the 4th itself......

:doh: consider the ball dropped

Provolone was the correct choice of cheese however.....I'm willing to revise to A- due to speed of original response.

You do realize that the Sabres obviously have enough pull where they can open it for a meeting with someone.
