Golisano will speak Saturday

Interesting note put out by the Sabres late Friday afternoon about a media gathering following Saturday's "Puck Drop" festivities:

"Team announcement by managing partner Larry Quinn, followed by a press conference with Buffalo Sabres owner Tom Golisano to discuss the 2008-09 NHL hockey season."

Hmmm. Team announcement? And Golisano speaks? That will be interesting. Other than his rights-holders "interviews" last year with MSG and WGR Radio, Golisano has not spoken to the media in this kind of setting since the 2006-07 season (he was part of the press conference to announce the Ice Bowl last September in Ralph Wilson Stadium and did one interview later in the season with the Associated Press).

So is this all something or nothing? And on the heels of a terrific summer off the ice, what inquiries might you have for Golisano heading into the season?
