I’m amazed by how quickly Terry Pegula went from Savior to schlub for so many media figures and fans. I’ll admit, I’m a defender. But what has he really messed up besides keeping Darcy Regier for too long? It’s not a crime to be an awkward public speaker.
Pegula has invested a lot of money and time in this team. So when he finally corrected his one glaring error, I expected to hear a lot of praise about the direction the Sabres were moving in. Instead, a lot of hockey fans and the media seemed to view Pegula’s decision to hire ex-Sabre Pat Lafontaine (who then hired ex-Sabre Ted Nolan) as just another example of a fanboy owner acting for nostalgia and without a plan.no comments
