I will say this: I was born in raised in Western New York (Medina for those that are curious) and have been a Sabres fan for a long time. The thing that I have enjoyed most since the new owner has taken over is that we are involved and being active. We traded for Regehr and Kotilik (Something that would NOT have happened under the previous ownership), were proactive and re-signed Stafford, traded for Brad Boyes at the deadline last season, and are involved in trying to get a top d-man to sign with Buffalo in Ehrhoff.
I was also on the Fourth Period website today and who knows if he will get any of these people or not, but it was nice to see a Buffalo Sabres logo involved in C Brad Richards, D Christian Ehrhoff, C/LW Tomas Fleischman, C Chris Drury, C Joel Ward, and they even had us linked with C Brooks Laich before he re-signed with Washington.
The past few years, as a fan I have watched top free agent after top free agent either leave Buffalo or not sign with us because we were too cheap. Hopefully this is a new sign in Buffalo and the Sabres will start being top contenders!
