The Fan 960 in Calagary is reporting Robyn Regehr has declined to waive his no trade clause. Speculation now that Regehr will accept a trade, even to Buffalo but wants to see if there are going to be any other offers for him. There are all sorts of rumors of the deal. Some of the more reputable sources like Mike Harrington are reporting the Sabres had Chris Butler and Paul Byron on the table for Regehr and Ales Kotalik.
Darren Dreger on TSN reported that Regehr has NOT waived his NTC.
The other rumor making the rounds at the moment is that the Sabres want to move way up in the first round tonight. Time will tell.
Update 7:46 p.m.
“I can’t waive unless I see options. I had no options, really, other than this deal. There was never anything other than that. It was a yes or no type thing,” said Regehr, who envisioned a dialogue and the ability to work with the Flames to find a deal that worked for both player and team.
That’s still a possibility.
“It’s a huge, important decision. I just wanted to make sure I explore as many options as possible,” said Regehr, who also didn’t rule out the Sabres in the future after having multiple discussions with GM Darcy Regier over the last few days.
“Darcy Regier has been fantastic,” Regehr said.
“We need to explore all our options. It sounds like Buffalo is great … but until we see what’s all out there, we can’t make a real good informed decision that we’re comfortable with.”
