This is rather amusing, as noted by RedWingsFeed:

Hoping that the Sabres raise the jersey to the rafters, take it down, place it next to a Stanley Cup, raise it to the rafters, take it down, place it next to a Stanley Cup, take it down, send it to the Czech Republic, send it to Russia, and then bring it back and finally raise it to the rafters one last time. For now. We think.
