The Buffalo Sabres will announce plans for an “Alumni Plaza” during a news conference at noon Thursday.
It has long been rumored the Sabres have had plans to erect statues of former players, including the French Connection and other players who have their numbers in the rafters at the First Niagara Center.
Sabres Vice President of Public and Community Relations Mike Gilbert said the team would have no comment until the news conference.
I could see Pegula commissioning the French Connection together (ie. celebrating) or apart as individuals; either's fine with me, as are ones for the other retired numbers.
