'The fact is this town needs the Sabres, and it needed someone to save them. If you're opposed to throwing public money at sports teams, and if you think we'd be better off with an AHL team, so be it. But if you treasure your NHL team and can't bear to see it leave town, you should at least give Hamister credit for giving it his best shot.'
