TEAM SPIRIT: The Sabres announced that last week’s Fan Appreciation Sale at the team store helped to set up a week of record-breaking sales. The Sabres Store through the seven-day sale sold nearly 50,000 pieces of merchandise, the most the team has ever sold in such a short period of time and a total that was greater than the amount sold during the entire ’10-11 season. The store sold more than 8,000 jerseys and 9,000 hats (Sabres).
TALKING THE TALK: In St. Paul, Charley Walters reports negotiations between T’Wolves Owner Glen Taylor and a "potential out-of-state buyer for the Wolves and Lynx continue, but any deal is at least a month away.” A purchase would “require that the NBA and WNBA teams remain in Minnesota” (ST. PAUL PIONEER PRESS, 1/25).
