Pegula is real deal

The rumor mill has been churning for years about the next owner of the Buffalo Sabres, but it was usually baseless chatter cooked up in blogs and message boards that was kicked aside as nonsense.

Terry Pegula's quest to buy the Sabres is very real, very possible and, it appears, quite probable.

Pegula has more than enough money and would become one of the richest -- if not the richest -- owner in the NHL. Tom Golisano is looking to sell the franchise to someone who will keep the team in Buffalo. Pegula is a passionate Sabres fan who lived in the area for several years. My guess is he would love to bring a Stanley Cup to Buffalo.

I haven't spoken to Pegula yet, but everything I hear about the guy has been positive. It sounds to me like he could be the ideal owner of the franchise. At this point, I would be surprised if an agreement wasn't reached.

Western New York should start get ready for a new era of Sabres hockey.
