'A slew of Buffalo Sabres were out in force on Monday participating in various charitable golf tournaments to benefit different causes.'
'For survival’s sake, Bettman is banking on the new rules revolutionizing his sport, paralleling the NBA’s maneuver 25 years ago. But time will tell whether the long-term health of hockey has benefited or if the rules are merely temporary appetizers.'
'"I think we're sitting in a good position," Sabres center Daniel Briere said. "I don't think we have a team right now to win the Stanley Cup, to be honest with you, but we have a lot of room under the salary cap, and we can make some moves."'
'It's always easy to underestimate the intelligence of Buffalo sports fans. But the smart people know better by now. Like a lot of those former Sabres, they've seen this organization in action, and they have learned to be skeptical.'
