'DuRoss was approached by an investment bank firm and a group of wealthy individuals and was asked to head the group to purchase the Sabres and keep them in Buffalo. The P-Bruins owner has a lot of experience running sports franchises. He also owns the pro soccer league Rochester Rhinos and Major League Lacrosse's Rochester Rattlers. He began the process two weeks ago and is very serious about acquiring the Sabres. "It's partly done with community interest at heart," said DuRoss. "No one wants to see their professional sports team leave their town."'
