Sabres general manager Darcy Regier has already vowed that the offseason will begin a serious “rebuilding” period for the team.
Buffalo will not be rebuilding from the ground up, but the team will be bringing in the necessary pieces to establish a Stanley Cup caliber team.
But before the Sabres can go after any free agents, they have to worry about which players they will re-sign. Luckily for Regier, there are not too many players he will have to worry about.
A good sign for fans is that Mike Grier has already been re-signed to a one-year contract.
However, there are still a few players that the Sabres will need to re-sign in order to develop into the well-balanced contender they would like to be.
