Its a simple question. I didn't state that there was a line, I am asking if there is one. and IF there is one, then if we lose 800 people that don't renew, there will be 800 others to pick up the seats.

If there is NOT a line, then ok, I see the point

Bingo. They are the lifeblood of a franchise and were priority #1 when Quinn/Golsinao took over.

Not to mention there are no guarantees anyone on a list is going to jump on season tickets or that if they do it will be enough to fill any losses. Those folks on the list are making the same financial calculations as the ST holder that may give up his seat. Are they going to be ready to spend the coin necessary to get a ticket? That could be anywhere from $1722 to $6888 for a pair of ST. Obviously when seats are given up they are not going to be just the less expensive ones.

The economic downturn has been discussed greatly by Quinn and its impact on their ticket sales and STH retention. They are worried about it and they obviously know about the waiting list.

Now add to that tanking a season after not making the playoffs the year before. It will make a mark on season tickets.

Miller uttered the term I didn't want to hear in his interview on Sabres.com: High Ankle Sprain.

I think he's toast for the rest of the season.

Quitters!

It's Ryan Miller, he looks like Jesus.

Miraculous things are bound to happen.

On second thought we're probably ****ed.

Anything high ankle sprain usually means that as a goaltender you are donezo for 2-3+ months and that's for a mild one. Anything more severe and Miller should be booking some surgery come June.

Sorry guys.
