Jeremy White live-tweeting the Sabres presser today is where it came from. PDF's will reportedly be available later.

Jeremy White went to the press conference and posted them on his Twitter account. Below is another. The one on the left represents the new plan, the one on the right was how it used to be.

Cost: In excess of $6m. Someone asked about cost, and Ted Black replied, "If I was putting it on credit card that gave me miles, I'd get over 6 million miles."


Edit: Won't let me link to it. Nevermind.

yeah its a circle.

Cant wait to see this thing, i think its going to be unreal. Probably very modern looking. Kim Pegula saw Vancouver's on youtube and she wanted to top it.

Here they say Vancouver spent $2.5 million renovating their locker room, the Sabres are tripling that.

Check out the new press room by the new visitor's locker room. (the one with the table with 4 seats behind it and then like 4x rows of 10-12 seats each.

Better get that sucker ready by July 1st boys...

I continue to be amazed at Ted Black's enthusiasm. Prior to teaming up with Pegula, as far as I know, he had no connection to this organiztion. Now he is as enthusiastic as any life long Sabre fan.

Where's the guy on the main board who was arguing that the Sabres won't be major players for Richards because "just because Pegula has money doesn't mean he will spend it"???

This is huge.

Just watching that video on Vancouver's locker room, which is considered one of the best if not the best in the NHL, they said one of the major changes was 2 entrances into the dressing room.

Well, we have 3.

seanlinden is that fellow's name and didn't you know? Those are $6m less that the Sabres can throw at Richards.

Seriously awesome news, I'm curious why they spend more than twice as much as Vancouver did, though, because theirs already look amazing. If it comes anything close that, it'll be great.

Looks like they forgot the stripper pole. Minor design oversight, I'm sure.

Holy facilities, batman. Looks like they're doubling the current space for the Sabres, and expanding the visiting facility by 50-70%. I can see the opposing players drooling with envy as they walk by Palace Pegula.

Is there any doubt that Pegula is borrowing from the llitch "How to Build a Stanley Cup Contender in the Rust Belt" playbook?

Now we just need us some world-class Swedes on the ice.
