Sabres University getting some pub

I think most of us knew about this already, but for those that didn't, the Sabres University project is getting some good pub.

While waiting for the National Hockey League lockout to end, Buffalo Sabres executives have been taking the time to educate each other, literally.

On Tuesdays and Thursdays this month, team staffers are attending what’s being called Sabres University. It’s a program that has Sabres employees acting as teachers for their colleagues, with courses ranging from “Salary Cap and Player Transactions” and “Media Buying” to “Fitness and Nutrition” and “Photoshop for Beginners.”

Sabres University was created in response to team owner Terry Pegula’s mandate to use the downtime during the lockout to become better as an organization. Sabres staffers have not sustained any layoffs or pay cuts as a result of the lockout.
Really a great idea, and another piece of the puzzle in Pegula making this organization over. (Although someone might quibble with Regier teaching “Salary Cap and Player Transactions”. )
