For the grief the Pegula's are beginning to take regarding their ownership of Buffalo sports teams, it's not because of a lack of trying. I hope they'll hire a Senior Advisor to assess what the Sabres need best and whether Whaley is worth retaining after the Draft. jmo.

If anything, hopefully this will motivate Whaley to really hit the books these last few days before the draft. Don't screw up!

I agree...they're obviously not getting it right, but I don't think anyone can argue they aren't proactively trying to get championships to Buffalo. They also aren't panicking at first sight, see Cleveland, Browns....they are trying to give the people they empower to do their jobs, spending money in FA and various departments. I am coming around to the idea that in both franchises they need someone between themselves and the executives of those franchises though - the dreaded "Czar" title / position that has frequently been suggested. I am now convinced they need this person on both teams....

Need to hire a team President to bring in credibility and structure to the organization and build a winner from the top down.

 

 

 

The Sabres can use that too.

This guy... an unemployed former NFL personnel guy who can't get rehired shouldn't really talk so much **** about Whaley

@greggabe
The Pegula's have fired the Sabres GM and HC. Don't think that is the only GM they are going to release from his duties
