Sabres' Pegula Hopes New Development In Downtown Buffalo Transforms City's Image
Published September 12, 2012
FRIENDS 'TIL THE END: Pegula on Monday also said that Sabres management and players, who "would be barred from contact during a lockout, would keep their bond if the NHL shuts its doors on the players." Pegula: "That's just a temporary thing. We all know that. If anything happens, there will be no lasting effect after." He added, "I can't tell you anything, just that talks continue. I don't want to lose draft picks." In Buffalo, John Vogl noted the Flames announced recently they "plan to cut the salary of team employees when the lockout commences." Pegula said that the Sabres "have not discussed their employees' wages, which were trimmed during the 2004-05 lockout by previous ownership" (BUFFALO NEWS, 9/11). Pegula said that if there "were to be any sustained work stoppage, he had no plans on cutting the pay of his administrative staff" (AP, 9/10).
