SABRES: In Buffalo, John Vogl reports Sabres season-ticket prices for the '08-09 season are rising $3-6 per game, a per-seat increase of $123-246 for the team’s 41 home games. Fans in every section of HSBC Arena will pay 8-18% more than last season. Also, the average ticket price at HSBC Arena next season will be $48.75, down from $49.01 for the '02-03 season, when Owner Tom Golisano purchased the team. Sabres Managing Partner Larry Quinn said, “I think most people expect an increase like this. I think the important thing to understand about the increase is that our prices this year are still lower than the year we bought the team” (BUFFALO NEWS, 5/16).
