CBA- Nothing but Good

from Buffalo Business First,
"It created a financial system that at least allows each team a chance to being (fiscally) viable," said B. Thomas Golisano, the Sabres' owner. "This new deal is nothing but good for the fans, the players and ownership." The Sabres, on Monday, began rolling out a new season-ticket sales marketing campaign that will see prices rolled back on average between 12 percent and 28 percent, with some seats as inexpensive as $10 per game. As for the team, Darcy Regier, the Sabres' general manager, said he expects it to operate with a player payroll in the $27 million to $29 million range, well below the league maximum cap of $39 million and about $4 million less than the $33 million player payroll it carried in the 2003-2004 season.
