Owner Tom Golisano has said several times that he wished his employees had one-day contracts. It would be nice if there were world peace, too, but it's not reality. Golisano pulled the Sabres from bankruptcy, but let's not forget he was making an investment. He dropped $60 million on the franchise and has watched its value skyrocket in the past two years. No problem here with him turning a profit, but he can't have it both ways. The lines to the ticket counter will get much shorter very quickly if fans believe they're being taken for a ride. It starts with changing the Sabres' thinking and accepting the fact that long-term contracts are part of the new NHL. Regier conceded Sunday that they were moving in that direction. It's about time. The Sabres know what they have in their young players. The smart play would be locking them up for lengthy deals, which would keep the team intact and get tomorrow's talent at today's prices.more
