How the Knox Family Lost The Sabres Expansion Certificate

Recommended Posts

I kept waiting for the happy ending, where the owner of Dave and Adam's hands Seymour 4 the certificate and they hug. Alas... OTOH, Seymour didn't exactly value the document too much in the first place.

Why not just typeset “Buffalo” and “New York”? Were there so many certificates of ownership handed out by the NHL that they needed to leave the city and state/province blank to be filled in later with some goofy typewriter?

It's probably karma for him and Larry Quinn having inserted themselves in the oldtimers games that were played around the time the MMArena was being built and opened making people pay to watch him play.  Nobody was there to see either on the ice, yet there they were.

Glad the certificate wasn't destroyed.

It boggles the mind how such an important piece of Buffalo Sabres history & our cities history could've been lost to chance or shall i say carelessness. Like i couldn't imagine a story like this occurring with the Leafs or Red Wings or really any other hockey team or professional sports team out there. You'd just expect more mindfulness would've been spent for keeping such an important document preserved for posterity in the 1st place. 

We're extremely lucky that it was Martin who purchased the auction & not anyone else & that the memorabilia wasn't accidentally destroyed/discarded or sold to another bidder.

Thanks for sharing the article!

Here is a great opportunity for Terry Pegula to show Sabre fans how much he loves the Sabres and their history. Make an offer to these guys that they can’t refuse. If Terry was willing to throw money away on the likes of Erhoff, Hodgson and  etc....this should be no problem for him, and maybe it buys him some good karma from the hockey gods....
