'Robert Carr, president of Carr Marketing Communications Inc., said the Sabres should have given the fans what they wanted: the original uniforms. "This sounds kind of trite, but maybe the Sabres are trying have their cake and eat it too," Carr said. "Fans have a very emotional tie to the old uniforms."'
'Mair had his case heard on August 4, and the award was made on August 6.'
'According to the Collective Bargaining Agreement between the players and the NHL, the Sabres have to automatically accept Mair's award because it is less than $1.4 million.'
‘Mair, whose arbitration hearing was held Friday, was limited to 40 games last season due to a concussion. He collected two goals and five assists, adding 47 penalty minutes in limited action.’
‘An arbitrator awarded Buffalo Sabres forward Adam Mair a one-year contract worth $675,000, the team announced on Sunday.’
‘The Sabres have no decision to make regarding Mair, as the team automatically must accept the ruling.’
