Per Sabres 

Wonder if a reporter will be smart enough to ask if they plan to not only expand the analytics department but actually use it in the decision making process.

Karmanos did have another team and opportunity but decided to come to Buffalo. 

Karmanos says he was very involved with Pittsburgh's drafting the last few years. Their 2018 and 2019 drafts I find very interesting.

UPL may play this weekend for Buffalo if healthy. 

Jack Quinn at center, thought he might have the ability to do it when drafted after looking at how he drove his line in the OHL last year.

Karmanos implied there would be scouting changes but not yet as he will take time to understand how the Sabres currently work

Kevyn and Terry drove down and went to the Amerks game last night when Quinn played center.

I think Karmanos has stronger opinions about the way a scouting department should be constructed than he let on.

But he's careful enough to do his due diligence and savvy enough to not want to make the crew he will be managing unduly uncomfortable.

Comes across as a very measured dude.

I liked him.  He seems pretty sharp, and not like the type of guy who would join a BS organization that isn't committed to winning.

We'll see.

The feedback immediately above makes Karmanos sound ... Beane-like?

Can you imagine TWO winning Buffalo teams??

He does seem pretty sharp. I just wonder if his decision was about money vs. the other options he had.

At this point...if he's good and he could help us......does it matter?

This all makes it seem like it's a serious positional change consideration for Quinn right now. Very interesting.

I wouldn’t read too much into Quinn at center. It was more out of necessity then anything.

Maybe it wasn’t necessarily BECAUSE Quinn was playing Center. Perhaps it was something else completely different.

Are the nachos good at that arena?How about the parking? Is the In house DJ guy any good? I mean that dude from 97 rock did get fired. It could be a plethora of reasons.

I certainly heard it more as "We didn't have very many options and we do think he has a skillset that might work there, with the emphasis on the first half.

arguably the MVP in each league.

Remember it well, loved the Braves!

Went to games to see all those players.
