Golisano is the only reason that Terry Pegula was able to buy the BUFFALO Sabres and not the Seattle Paul Allen's. BTG is the only reason we still have a team, he is more of a savior then Pegula.
BTG deserves credit for buying the team, and keeping them here. Nobody disputes that.

He was also an absentee landlord, and his edict of breakeven and fiscal stability over on ice performance was, frankly, a huge detriment to this organization.
