i'm not basing this off of anything in particular, but when chain mentioned ticket pricing it sort of popped into my head
the st. louis blues announced that season ticket holders would only have to pay for 50% of their tickets if the blues missed the playoffs. perhaps something along those lines? or even better, if the sabres DO make the playoffs, season ticket holders only have to pay 50%
Looks like it's the scoop on Fan Appresh Night (Fri 4/8 vs PHI). Here's the info:
* Pegula will speak at the Sabres' Power Play Luncheon that afternoon.

The evening will also include live music from Strictly Hip, and food and drink will be available outside for purchase.
All attending alumni will be honored in a pre-game on-ice ceremony that will also include presentation of the 2010-11 Sabres MVP, Rookie of the Year and Hardest Working Player awards. In addition, an online vote will provide Sabres fans with the opportunity to make their choice for “The 7th Man” – the team’s Fan of the Year Award. Details of the online voting process will be announced shortly.
Throughout the game, season ticket holders will be selected though random drawings to win a jersey off the back of a Sabres player. The winning fans will then be brought down to the ice post-game, and will receive their game-worn jersey directly from their selected player.
