TBN Comprehensive on Golisano's Ownership Initiatives

A non-Bucky take on the ownership group: Link

And the salary number revisited:

<i>At the same time, the player payroll will be appreciably above Golisano's previous public estimate of around $30 million.

"When the dust settles, we're going to be at $33 million when the season starts," Quinn said. "Tom is demonstrating that he's willing to make an investment in the competitiveness of this team."</i>

Seems the money for reasonable deals for both McKee and Satan is there, so that at least puts the kibosh on any that reasoning...

Interesting tidbits off ice:

- He's trying to get games on TV in So. Ontario. Best way to win back fans in a market is give them something to watch.
- Suite sales are up
- New sound system including an new organ
- Ribbon ad system
- New projection system to show images on the ice
- Customer service? From a company in Buffalo? Who'd a thunk it...
- 8:00pm Friday starts... good for those crossing the border as well as the local restaurants and bars

Edit... that's border, not boarder... hockey on the brain.
