It should’ve been obvious at the time.
When Terry Pegula purchased the Buffalo Sabres in 2011, it was impossible not to get caught up in all the hype. We were swept away by the money, by the endless possibilities a billionaire and his Stanley Cup aspirations presented to a sports town desperate for relevancy.
But, in retrospect, we should’ve seen this coming. We forecasted Utopia -- the perfect owner with a flawless plan. Were we that naive to expect Hockey Heaven overnight?
Pegula’s Tuesday appearance on WGR 550’s “Sabres Hockey Hotline,” if anything, exposed a few warts on the man that once could do no wrong. We’ve seen now, at the least, that he’s far from perfect.
So, entering the third offseason with Pegula as the Sabres owner, what should we expect going forward? Are the Sabres really going about this the right way?no comments
