from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,
While debate rages over who should win the NHL’s annual honors, such as the Hart, Norris and Calder trophies, the 2013 Chutzpah Award has been decided by acclamation.
The winner is: the Buffalo Sabres.
No organization could even come close to competing with the one from western New York that has earned this dubious achievement for citing the league’s new collective bargaining agreement — under which the owners take home 50 perecent of revenue, as opposed to the old agreement, under which the Lords of the Boards were entitled to 43 percent of the share — as the reason the club is increasing season-ticket prices for 2013-14.
No, seriously. The scale of audacity just doesn’t register any higher than it does in Buffalo, where after just a couple of seasons in which, by the way, the Sabres have failed to qualify for the playoffs, Terry Pegula has gone from the Peoples’ Owner to, well, the Owner of the People.
