HOW SAD TO SEE ANOTHER SABRE LEAVING. IT'S VERY OBVIOUS THAT IT'S ALL ABOUT THE MONEY......AND NOT ABOUT THE TEAM. THEY CERTAINLY HAVE LOST THEIR CREATIVITY.

I wonder how many season ticket holders are going to give up their seats now?

I AM NOT QUITE SURE IF THE SABRES COULD HAVE AFFORDED BRIAN CAMBELL,BUT IT IS ABSOLUTELY CLEAR THAT THE SABRES JUST WANT A TEAM; NOT A CONTENDER. THEY ARE SATISFIED WITH AVERAGE PLAYERS AND IF ANYONE BREAKS OUT AND BECOMES A "STAR", THEY ARE NOT GOING TO TRY AND BE COMPETITIVE IN KEEPING THAT PLAYER,. EXCELLING ON THE SABRES ONLY GETS YOU SHIPPED OUT. THEY WILL NEVER BE A CONTENDER AGAIN.WNY FANS ARE BEING SLAPPED IN THE FACE FOR BEING LOYAL TO IT PROFESSIONAL TEAMS!
Your are so right As long as the fans keep paying for just a team and not a contender then the Sabres will continue to make these types of deals. As I stated perviously, I thought this was a democracy? Those who perform better should get paid based on that performance or not paid based on their performance. When the Sabres built up a contender, the fans, WE, packed the arena for the entertainment. Now that the Sabres GM's decide to let it run with just a team, they still think the fan will pay the big bucks and they are sure riding on the hipe of 2006. They know the hipe will linger for a while and they can afford to make moves like this because buffalo fans are suckers as we have proven. I mlike hockey too but I recently sold by Bills and Sabres season tickets and spend time with my family on weekends instead of paying for Golisono's or Wilson million dollar estates. Maybe someday the loyalty will come back.

i cant believe that they traded soupy. they trade all the good ones and keep the half half players. why do you think that they are not in the playoffs this year because of all the trades they make. they dont know what they are doing i dont think i will be going to many more games since they traded soupy. i was thinking of getting season tickest but know i dont think so any more. we will miss him. and hopefully they dont boo him when he comes to play us next year. i think that is rude when they boo an old player. we will miss a good player. they should look at the managment and not the players. sometimes it is them. i dont know what tom is thinking when he trades the good players. we will miss you soupy

Well What can be said? I guess Buffalo will always have a GROWING YOUNG TEAM!!!! Be it Hockey or Football. We have been growing for years!!!
When are we going to grow up?? If we keep getting rid of good players we will never win at anything!!!!! This time we lost an ALL STAR!!!! Just like last year. Makes me not want to watch anymore. I know I will not waste any more money on tickets! for what? It doesn't help the team any!!!! Just Management and owners!!!!

Obviously you didn't watch the game last night... Of course Brian will be missed, but the trade they made will definately help the Sabres. If they continue to play with the intensity they played last night, only good things will happen.
