Here at DGWUS, we like to bash the hell out of Mr. Regier and the rest of the Sabres front office. I'll be the first to say we have a "what have you done for me lately" mentality when dealing with them. But we do give props when they are deserved. And today, folks, I have to give a little hats-off to Darcy.
SI.com has a little write-up and slideshow of the top 25 free agent busts over the past several seasons. 20-percent of that list are players that Darcy let walk. Of course, he may have let them walk for numerous different reasons, and had no clue they would be busts, but then again, this makes him look like he actually knows what he's doing, and we have to accept that (especially that Brian Campbell contract which becomes more and more ridiculous every day). So please check it out, and pay close attention to #3, 7, 13, 20, and 26.
Now let us sit back and watch all the hot free agents get picked off the market.
