Former Buffalo Sabres owner Tom Golisano finally puts a bid in to purchase the Buffalo Bills. [Buffalo Rumblings].
You almost need a draft or trade deadline day type live post to keep track of everything. Bon Jovi is in, Bon Jovi is out, Donald Trump wants it, Terry Pegula is going to get it. Tom Golisano finally throws his name in the ring to become the next owner of the Buffalo Bills.
This happens over a week after the initial deadline, as the trust for the team is starting to meet with perspective buyers one-on-one and start to receive second full proposals.
Personally I don’t care who owns the Buffalo Bills – but I do want them to stay in Buffalo. Personally I am glad that Golisano is in on the bid process, and that Jim Kelly is involved with someone at this point, because, well as a Buffalo Sabres fan – I am selfishly thinking that I don’t want Terry Pegula to own the Buffalo Bills. Of course, let Terry Pegula bring the Buffalo Bills to Buffalo with a waterfront stadium. Maybe then he can spearhead the effort to get Bass Pro downtown. Maybe the subway could then do more than a straight line.
Or maybe the Pegula’s could be considered to make a huge donation to the Buffalo Zoo – anyone who has visited in the last year or so can see that the zoo is changing and upgrading, but they could use a boost, as could a lot of areas.
Buffalo Sabres variable pricing is out, and tickets go on sale September 13th. [WGR550].
Any effort the Buffalo Sabres did in increasing the hype around the team this off season has been most decidedly wiped out by the business side of the team, who has released the variable ticket pricing for 2014-2015.
The best seats on the best nights are going for $240 dollars a pop, but a family can still get value games for 35 dollars a piece.
Only one game will fetch the 240 dollar price tag, and that is the platinum game when the Toronto Maple Leafs come to town, and there is a good chance First Niagara Center is more blue and white that night than blue and gold. The schedule only includes 8 value games, so if you are looking for an affordable night out for the family – plan accordingly.
Sam Reinhart has his National Hockey League contract under wraps, so his focus is Team Canada. [Herald Sports].
There is no guarantee that the Buffalo Sabres highest prospect since Pierre Turgeon will make the opening night roster for the Buffalo Sabres – but the teen hockey sensation is not worried about that right now, with his focus being on making the squad with team Canada.
He is a second overall draft pick, captain of his squad, but takes nothing for granted. Team Canada is in a rebuild phase looking to claim gold, and the Buffalo Sabres are rebuilding.
Sam Reinhart just wants to play hockey wherever he is needed.
