I think people are totally wrong. You might have to overpay a bit but guys don't want to play in Toronto. The media pressure is insane. Four dailies, two TV sports networks that focus heavily on Leafs and are based in Toronto, tons of sports radio.
Ask Phil Kessel if he likes Toronto much these days. LOL.
Buffalo is a cakewalk in terms of media pressure. Who do you do deal with, Bucky Gleason and Paul Hamilton.
Guys of certain age, married with kids, don't mind Buffalo either.
But you gotta pay and prove you're building a winner.
Detroit keeps and signs guys and that city is a dump.
I'm not from Buffalo. I'm a Toronto sabres fan.
If he's available, Pegula will have to sign the check and you might to go very long-term, which is the big risk.
