Kyle Okposo On The Future Of The Buffalo Sabres

from John Vogl of the Buffalo News,

The Sabres are going to use many tactics in their recruiting pitch to Jimmy Vesey. Kyle Okposo revealed the simplest one of all.

Tell Vesey the Sabres are going to win.

Okposo, officially introduced Thursday in Buffalo, sees good things ahead for his new organization and hopes Vesey sees it, too.

"I would tell him that we’re going to be a good team for a long time, and it’s going to be a fun organization to play in," Okposo said in First Niagara Center. "When you have the Pegulas at the helm, it’s going to be a great organization. We’re going to be contenders. That’s something that isn’t always there on teams. I know that personally. We went through a really tough stretch with the Island.

"There’s not going to be those rough times ahead. We’re going to be good."
