'The Sabres have grossed $1.1 million more this season than at this point in the 2003-4 season. Quinn also said paid attendance is "way up" but could not remember the exact numbers so declined to give a number for fear of giving a wrong figure. Quinn also said the franchise gave away a lot of tickets when they were owned by the Rigas family and Adelphia communications. This hurt the franchise's business as the number of free tickets devalued them to the general public. Quinn said the team is very happy with ticket sales, revenues and the response to the team from people in Buffalo.'
