I Do and here is why...
If the new CBA gets rid of signing bonuses and cap contracts to 5 years then what does Pegula bucks do for the sabres? Nothing
Why would superstars come here? They wouldn't
The new CBA will give teams like Philly, NYR, Pitt and Detroit all the ammunition they need to lock up all the best players.
The only advantage the sabres have is the ability to throw millions at players, without this I think the sabres are in big trouble.
Levels the playing field money wise, kind of like the NFL. What will win is top notch drafting and developing. Coaching will become even more important.
All those things cost money as well. Pegula has put in a lot of money towards developing players and coaching, and he will continue to do so.
