However, Regier maintains that no imminent changes are coming and that the Sabres do not need a shakeup at this point in time.
"At this time of the year and where we are, I've done a lot of talking to teams around the league, so I'm aware of some of those situations," Regier told the News. "Right now there's nothing imminent, and that's part of the business. We'll keep working. If there's a move that makes sense for us, we'll do it if something is going to improve our hockey club. There's nothing imminent, as I said, right now."
While several trade rumors point out Anaheim Ducks stars Ryan Getzlaf and Bobby Ryan as possible targets, the players' expensive price tags might be an issue for the Sabres' inexistent cap space.
Multiples injuries since the beginning of the season have put the Sabres in 11th place of the Eastern Conference and five points out of a playoff spot.
Sabres center Derek Roy was recently added to the list of injured players, as coach Lindy Ruff confirmed he would miss time with an upper-body injury.
"Derek's going to be out for a little bit of time," Ruff said.
The 28-year-old forward has been mentioned on several occasions as potential trade bait that could bring forth the help the Sabres need to get out of this slump, if Regier decides to make some moves before itís too late.
