'You know what the Sabres received from the organization when they went to the Stanley Cup finals in 1999? A $100 gift certificate to a shopping mall, a toy car, a yo-yo and an Adelphia Communications fishing hat. Teams usually reward their players with vacations or cash. The Sabres were so insulted it became laughable. It's one reason many in the organization have little sympathy for the Rigases' troubles with Adelphia.'
