Step 1: Gut the Front Office
It is pretty clear that this is an organization with no clue as to how to build a reputable, successful hockey team. I have written about this before, but who in the Sabres organization has ever truly tasted success? Who brings with them to the table prior experience that can be drawn upon as the Sabres develop their blueprint for the future? Ted Black, and then . . . yeah.
Fans are being told that the Sabres are in the midst of a rebuild. Actually, you can argue that the Sabres have been rebuilding ever since Chris Drury and Daniel Briere left town, and the results are a mixed bag at best, and a complete joke at worse. The people in charge of making decisions for this team appear to be guessing, instead of relying on discernible skill and knowledge, It’s time for Terry Pegula to use his money to bring some knowledgeable professionals into the front office of the Buffalo Sabres.
