It could be worse for the Buffalo Sabres. At least they are getting paid for their services on the ice. The Ottawa Senators, who the Sabres play Saturday night in Canada's Capital, haven't gotten their pay checks this year. The Sens, who are leading the NHL with 53 points and sporting a 24-9-5 record, host the Sabres in what has been billed the "Bankrupt Bowl." It is a direct clash in how a small market team manages its money. Both the Sabres and Senators have been having problems financially and up until last year, the two teams were often referred to as "twin franchises" for more reasons than one.
