Sabres GM Darcy Regier has been fielding calls for goalie Ryan Miller, left wing Thomas Vanek and center Steve Ott, while he's willing to move the likes of right wing Drew Stafford and defenseman Tyler Myers.
Miller, Vanek and Ott are all set to become unrestricted free agent next July, and it has been well documented that Miller and Vanek do not plan on re-signing with the club.
A trade might not be imminent -- as of Saturday night -- but Regier is looking to shake things up and get his team going.
The Sabres aren't likely to fire head coach Ron Rolston, but numerous reports claim Regier is now on the hot seat, especially after fans began chanting "Fire Darcy" during home games.
Regier, who became in the Sabres' GM in 1997, isn't focused on the outside chatter and has set his attention on improving the hockey club.
If the Sabres decide to make a change in upper management, it's not likely to happen until the off-season, or well after the second-half of the season.
