Maturing game key to 3-year deal for Sabres' Kaleta



“The positive is it’s moving in the right direction,” Regier said.


Shane Doan, the most coveted unrestricted free agent left, hasn’t met with the Sabres, Regier said. The veteran winger has been visiting clubs. Regier’s not sure if they’ll meet. The Sabres have expressed an interest.

Doan has been waiting to sign while the Phoenix Coyotes, the only franchise he’s ever played for, sort out their ownership mess.

Regier admires Doan’s loyalty.

“He’s spent his whole career with that organization,” he said, “and that’s meaningful. … But in the event he’s not going to stay there, we certainly would have an interest.”


According to, center Travis Turnbull, who spent three years in the Buffalo organization and played three NHL games last season, has signed with Dusseldorf of the DEL in Germany.

The Sabres didn’t offer Turnbull a contract.
