    The Drury deal is wrong. Should be 5/25.

    Forget Francis, he would have stalked Vancouver to trade Pavel Bure. And I would have been so happy.

    That was actually pretty good. The Murray/Whaley part was very inspired.

    Ron Francis is one my fav players of all time, It would have been the greatest gift for 12 year old me, Ron Francis in a Sabres uniform (favorite player on favorite team)

    The whole Francis thing was true though, Darcy really wanted him when he ended up with Carolina. I remember reading an article when we got bounced from the playoffs the previous year how ownership was going to open the purse strings and we were going to get Francis...:laugh:

    And we all know how that turned out, the Sabres continually had a payroll in the low 30 millions and Hasek took up nearly 30% of it. Imagine if we had a Pegula back in the DPE with no cap and Hasek?!? We would have a salary hit like the Rangers except not suck because Regier could draft/trade and Ruff was a good coach back then. Yeah, a Pegula as owner from 97-04 before the salary cap is a guaranteed cup win ainec. We nearly won one with Hasek and a garbage cheap roster.

    Dave Davis and PD are both worthless.

    A fun article to read. The disallowed goal would have given the Sabres something that would have at least propelled them to not settle IMO.

    I really don't care about a publication that's pushed the "Buffalo's problems start with Pegula" angle for years, pivoting to a fluff piece by a meh writer.
