BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Buffalo Sabres general manager Darcy Regier hasn't given up entirely on his desire to acquire one of the highly coveted top three picks in the NHL draft.
The problem is, the prospect of pulling off a deal is proving tougher than anticipated. Despite offering goalie Ryan Miller and forward Thomas Vanek as trade possibilities, Regier has yet to find anyone open to making a deal.
That could leave the Sabres on the outside looking in Sunday, when forwards Nathan MacKinnon and Jonathan Drouin, and defenseman Seth Jones are projected to be taken with the first three picks.
Regier will still have a chance to further his rebuilding plan. Buffalo has 10 picks, including the eighth and 16th overall, in the seven-round draft.
