Sabres still searching for help

The Sabres missed out of several free agents yesterday, but that won't stop GM Darcy Regier from luring additional assistance, reports the Buffalo News.

"We were pursuing a couple of forwards that we had offers in on, and we had hope that they would decide to play in Buffalo. They've chosen to play elsewhere," Regier told the paper. "We're open to it, but there's nothing sitting on the front burner at this time."

Regier will continue his search today, as the Sabres want to land a top-six forward, another defenseman and a backup goalie.

The News suggests Regier could pull the trigger on a trade if he's unable to obtain any more help via free agency. Yesterday, the Sabres signed defenseman Jordan Leopold to a three-year contract.

Meanwhile, the Sabres may be bringing back goalie Patrick Lalime, as Regier expects to speak with his agent today.
