Chain, dunno if you've seen my comments earlier in the thread, but they stopped taking questions of substance about 15 minutes in to the chat. It's been brainless fluff ever since. Don't bother asking legitimate questions.

Who won the 7th man contest, will they do a general contest announcement that it is over and a winner has been selected?

BUFFALO SABRES:
Kim Pegula and I were just looking at the videos. We received a ton of them and they were awesome. it was very difficult to narrow to just one 7th Man (or Woman), but I think we have a winner. I will hold off on that announcement until the end if that is ok

Are there going to be major changes to the look of the arena this off season?

BUFFALO SABRES:
Well, first let me again thank everyone for the 10,000 suggestions. I really enjoy reading them and I have responded directly to several. There will be some changes in the off-season such as painting the "rose colored" walls in the bowl, improving the ice/humidity situation and a rather signficant locker room renovation that we are still planning.

many of the fan suggestions were to have a carnival. That could be cool. We will looking at a number of parties/events over the summer. This is THE best hockey market -- hockey heaven -- and it does not end in June. It is a year-round thing

You are giving away 19,000 towels, but there are plenty of fans who will not be at the game who would like to have a towel, could you sell them in the store? Also it would be fun to have rally towels outside for the party's in the plaza during the playoffs.

[Comment From Guest Guest: ]
Good evening Mr. Black. As an employee of Delaware North, we prepare all of the meals for the Sabres players, wives, alumni, employee's etc., along with all of the other events happening at the arena. We unfortunately work behind the scenes in the kitchens and it kind of feels like we go unnoticed most times. I work in the Harbour Club 100 level and after we serve the pre-game buffet, we then spend the rest of the night back in the kitchen away from all of the action and don't really feel like we are a part of what is happening in the arena. We don't even have TV's in the kitchen, so we have to rely on updates when we can get them from server's. Anything you can do for us behind the scenes folks to help us feel more involved?

I know Golisano and Quinn wanted alot of friday and saturday games, and this led to many back to back sets all year long. Will this trend continue, or is it possible the team doesn't have as many back to backs in the upcoming years?

Can you have intermission games. They used to get people in sumo wrestler outfits and race on the ice.

I've asked this question about 5 times so far to no avail.. but I'll try one more time. Will you or Terry talk to your neighbors who own the buildings next to the parking ramp and tell them to keep the buildings intact? They want to demolish them! Buffalo has enough parking lots! Make it a pre-game destination for us fans!!

[Comment From Jill, a sabres cutie Jill, a sabres cutie: ]
Mr. Black, will you make improvements with Sabres, Arena, Store, and Concessions with more environmentally friendly products? Maybe like organic fiber shirts with soy ink, or biodegradable forks/plates/cups. Perhaps ecofriendly cleaning supplies? I mean, what's the point of having a Sabres Green Team if we don't stand by it? In all respect, I hope my favorite team isn't greenwashing, just to look "good".

[Comment From SiDC SiDC: ]
When you or Terry travel with the team, are you guys surprised with amount of Sabre fans and away games? Is there any plans to include those of us who are your support system on away games. Is there any plans to expand the Road Crew? That was one of the best ideas from the previous administration.
