Girgensons says no to Vermont, yes to Sabres



“It’s something we’re looking at,” he said. “It’s a very limited marketplace right now. We’re looking at the possibility of trades. But if it doesn’t happen, we’re comfortable with the group we have.”

He also plans to “add a couple people over the next few days” for Rochester.

The Sabres have little interest in bringing back winger Derek Whitmore, whose 28 goals topped the Americans last season.

“We have not had discussions with Derek,” Regier said. “I think there’s a little bit of an understanding that he was going to search in a new direction and we were going to. But I would not rule out the possibility of him playing there. … He’s certainly a very good hockey player.”

Whitmore played his first two NHL games last season.
