Keep Em or Dump Em?

       Let's play General Manager for a moment without worrying about player salary or contracts.  I want to know everyone's pure, honest, opinion about the players on the Sabres roster.

       I think most Sabres fans are in agreement that about  eight or nine Sabres have lived up to expectations, and we would like to see them return next season. Miller, Vanek, Roy, Stafford, Myers, Montador, Leopold, Ennis, and McCormick are all guys I think most of us want to see wearing the blue and gold a year from now. 

      I also think there are a few guys we all want to see leave town at the end of the year.  Niedermayer, Rivet, Grier, Connolly, and (to a lesser extent) Patrick Lalime headline that list. 

      I want your opinion on the guys in between.  I am going to rank them in order from the guys I would most like to see return, to the guys I would hold the door for on their way out.  Then, you let me know if my list is off the mark.

KEEP EM                                                                                                               DUMP EM 

Pominville, Kaleta, Sekera, Adam, Gerbe, Hecht, Weber, Gaustad, Grier, Connolly, Butler                                                                                                 

      What do you think?  I would probably draw the line right around Weber.  He shows potential, but I'm not sold on him just yet.  I would keep Hecht for the PK and the fact he plays well with Pominville. I hate to say this about the Goose, but I am not impressed by his play at all.  He wins a bunch of faceoffs early in games against third line centers, but what else does he really contribute?  I expect you to kill me for this, but if we're honest with ourselves, McCormick is really the guy we wanted Gaustad to be.
