“He didn’t hedge his bet at all when he bought the team. He said his goal is to win multiple Stanley Cups. He didn’t say, ‘We’re going to try our hardest.’ He said, ‘We’re going to win multiple Stanley Cups,’” Regier said. “He has a philosophy on how that’s done based on what he did with his oil company, and this is just an indication. He spoke with Robyn and said, ‘I’m going to come up and see you.’ I have not been a part of an ownership that takes that type of genuine interest in the players and the relationships with them.”
“The youth and the experience, I think that blend will do well for us,” Regier said.
Kotalik, who three times reached the 20-goal mark over five full seasons with the Sabres, returns to his original team. The 32-year-old forward was sent to the American Hockey League down the stretch last season before returning to the Flames, but Regier said he believes Kotalik can still play in the NHL. Kotalik had only six points in 26 games for the Flames last season.
