Sabres' future as cloudy as a Seattle winter day

Via: The Sabres Edge

In light of Monday's Chapter 11 filing and the possibility that Mark Hamister's bid for ownership will be withdrawn due to New York State's refusal to grant up to $30 million in funding for HSBC Arena improvements, the distinct possibility exists that the Sabres may not remain in Buffalo next year. One of the cities mentioned, as a future home of the Sabres, is Portland, Oregon, predicated on Microsoft co-owner Paul Allen taking a legitimate stab at buying the Sabres. Residing just up the Interstate from Portland, I'd like to shoot a few holes into this scenario.
