That aspect, I'm not so confident of. Yes, just the fact that they're now willing to compete for high-priced players is a departure from the stereotypes the Golisano regime nurtured - but the Sabres also seem to have this reputation of always being on the cusp only to come up short in the end, regardless of effort. If they bid and lose, that perception of "yeah, they tried but in the end failed" will linger.
If they bid and win over heavy competition, that perception will be blown to bits.
