Pegula meets with executive committee

CARY, N.C. -- Sabres prospective owner Terry Pegula met with the NHL's executive commitee this morning as he continues his efforts to buy the team.

Boston Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs confirmed that the meeting was held before the 9 a.m. NHL Board of Governors' meeting in Umstead Hotel and Spa, but he would not get into details. Jacobs presides over the NHL executive committee, which oversees major financial transactions such as ownership changes.

Pegula has not spoken since his name surfaced as a potential owner and was not immediate available this morning. He did not meet with the full board of governors because he's not eligible. All indications pointed toward him buying the team for $175 million, however, and closing on the deal in the next few weeks or sooner after he receives approval from the other owners.

The Sabres did not send a representative to the board of governors' meeting in Cary, which is a suburb of Raleigh. Sabres spokesman Michael Gilbert said today Quinn was absent because his flight into Raleigh was canceled.
