I understand Pegula and Black only wanting to look at recent history and not the past 15 years, but how can they possibly look at the last two years and conclude that this team is on a good trajectory?
They may not care about the team at this point -- they feel the "franchise" is in a better place.
They threw money at players who otherwise wouldn't give Buffalo a sniff, and because of that, they think they can call this "hockey heaven" for players now. It's hockey heaven for mercenaries.
You want players who want to come to your team to win a Cup. And right now, that has to be a laughable idea for players who see Ruff and Regier constantly being passed along to the next grade.
