Trade needed in Buffalo
TheFourthPeriod.com

The Sabres hit rock-bottom on Monday following a 5-0 loss to the Detroit Red Wings, sitting them in 11th place of the Eastern Conference with seven points out of a playoff spot.

Although new owner Terry Pegula keeps repeating to the Buffalo News that coach Lindy Ruff's position behind the bench is safe, the club's ninth straight regulation loss on the road clearly proved that GM Darcy Regier needs to generate a major shakeup via trade if the season is to be saved.

Injuries have definitely taken a toll on the roster, which had begun the season with high Stanley Cup aspirations.

However, on top of starting goaltender Ryan Miller struggling this season with a .898 save percentage and 3.12 goals-against-average per game, the Sabres' offense sits in 24th place in the league with 2.44.

Forward Derek Roy had been mentioned in the past several weeks as potential trade bait to be used en route to the Feb. 27 deadline as he has faced criticism this season due to his nine goals and 16 assists for 25 points in 43 games.
