Gerbe on the Trade Block?
What has happened to Nathan Gerbe?
Not that I expect the diminutive 5’5 180 pounder to be tearing it up but still no points in seven games?
Sources say don’t be shocked if Sabres GM Darcy Regier moves or at least attempts to move Gerbe in the near future.
Gerbe has been relegated to fourth line duty where with his size he’s hardly making any sort of relevant impact. He’s playing 9 minutes on a good night but for the most part is seeing 6-7 minutes of ice a night. This guy isn't a fourth line player and I'm not so sure what the thought process is here.
The return of Patrick Kaleta (neck), who was cleared to return today, could make Gerbe expendable. The former Boston College standout scored 16 goals two-years ago before seeing his total reduced to six last season.
The Sabres are currently sitting in last place in the Northeast Division and word is Regier is on the phone exploring his options.
Forward Ville Leino has missed the entire season with a hip injury and I’m told he could be headed towards labrum surgery which would force him to miss the entire year.
D-man Tyler Myers is apparently a healthy scratch tonight at the Islanders.
Anaheim goaltender Jonas Hiller won't dress tonight in St. Louis after leaving Friday's game in Dallas early. Word is the injury isn't serious and he's considered day to day.
