Sabres owner says team suc­cess­ful in re­build­ing process

Cape Breton Post - - SPORTS -

BUF­FALO, N.Y. — Buf­falo Sabres owner Terry Peg­ula says the last two los­ing sea­sons were big suc­cesses for the team. Peg­ula said Thurs­day that the suc­cess didn’t show up in wins and losses but will show up in the fu­ture. Peg­ula made the com­ments dur­ing a panel dis­cus­sion with his wife, Kim, as well as Bos­ton Bru­ins owner Jeremy Ja­cobs and NHL com­mis­sioner Gary Bettman on Thurs­day. When asked whether suc­cess is mea­sured dif­fer­ently for his sports busi­ness than his cor­po­rate en­ter­prises, Peg­ula of­fered the ex­am­ple of the Sabres’ re­cent strug­gles, which were cel­e­brated by fans who wanted the team to “tank” for the first over­all pick.
