When Will The Suffering Stop In Buffalo?

from Jerry Sullivan of the Buffalo News,

You see, this is why we encourage the Sabres to conduct these end-of-season news conferences. No matter how grim the circumstances, they always manage to find fun, creative ways to spin failure as progress.

Larry Quinn set a pretty high bar when he asked fans to give the team a “mulligan” after missing the playoffs a few years back. Last year, in lieu of an actual media gathering, team president and mouthpiece Ted Black told us that “sometimes, winning and success aren’t necessarily the same thing.”

On Monday, Darcy Regier celebrated his retention as general manager by telling Sabres fans that it was time to get ready for some “suffering.” He uttered the suffering theme several times in the 45-minute session, as if he were a preacher getting his followers fired up to accept their just penance.

“I’d like to think that people will give up some suffering in order to win the Stanley Cup,” Regier said. “I’m willing to do it. I believe our fan base is willing to do it.”
