Yep you are right , I just read the TSN article and Briere won't get deal

http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/news_story/?ID=173212&hubname=

My only question mark is how the Sabre will be able to live with a over 40M$ payroll ? The Sabres can barely handle a 30-35M$ payroll , I'm not sure that the owner will accept to lose money to see a competitive team.

Their tickets sales are already at 12,000 and it finished at 8,000 last year. Their payroll probably can increase.

"Business booming in Buffalo: The Sabres' success on the ice last season is reflected in ticket sales for the coming season. The team has reached its target of 12,000 season-ticket packages, and that number represents full packages. The team will begin pushing mini-packs over the next month. Last year, the team had the equivalent of 8,000 season-tickets for the 18,690-seat HSBC Arena.

While fans are happy with the team, they're not thrilled with the Sabres' new jersey. Team president Larry Quinn admitted public opinion was decidedly against the new design, but he said there were further modifications in the works. And Quinn said the team would wear its old jerseys for 15 of its 41 home games."

They're giving Briere+Dumont close to what we give Kovalev and Samsonov.

The average ticket price in Buffalo is much lower than the average ticket in Montreal. Plus, in Montreal, we have a lot of Corporative Lodge who each cost a few 100k a year.

No one would take that contract. And give up assets to get it.

But both Kovalev and Samsonov were UFA and signed multi years deals. Briere and Dumont were RFA.

The decision becomes a similar one as a take it or leave it and walk away situation.

Yeah and that makes it even worse. Starting next year they will no doubt be paid even more for their UFAs years.

No it's not. The ticket price range is about identical, actually.

You should check your information, last year they had so much trouble selling tickets that they had to do many promotions in order to have some guys in their arena.

I think there was a promotion like we equal to CAN dollars to the US dollars when you buy tickets (since the canadian border is near). Unless what I heard is false (but I read this from a few differents posters), they always had big trouble to sell out their tickets.

Plus you can deny the facts that they don't have the companies support like we do here in Montreal (border ads, corporative loges who are ULTRA expensive and more).
