'What would happen if the Sabres left? Immediately a group of local entrepreneurs would negotiate for a minor league franchise and by next season we would have a team – the Jackknifes, perhaps – in a minor league the next level down. And we would be good candidates for association with a major league team, quite possibly Toronto. Is that a reasonable outcome? I suggest that it is better than reasonable. It would far better serve this community than any continuation in major league hockey.'
