Actually they will be nice money makers. Most of the top money making events events in the Buffalo area are amateur sport tournaments and events.

This project would essentially give the Sabres a 3 rink facility to host hockey tournaments. The hotels downtown would benefit greatly from this. There is no way the hotel thats part of the project would be able to hold the amount of families that would be coming in for a tournament.


As for not being blue chip. I think thats more a product of a lack of understanding of the money that can be generated from the events its could host and the demand for ice in this area.
