Biggest story of the week?

News has been hopping in Sabreland:

*Terry Pegula left a good impression during a meeting with the NHL executive committee Saturday morning, showing off his regular-guy personality while confirming he has both the financial strength and passion that would make him a successful owner of the Buffalo Sabres.

*Tom Golisano has completed an agreement to sell the franchise to Pennsylvania billionaire Pegula and will join managing partner Larry Quinn to discuss the transaction during a news conference at noon Thursday.

*The News has learned Golisano gave Regier a two-year extension, a deal the team has never announced. The contract's total value is believed between $2 million and $2.5 million.

*Coach Lindy Ruff said was also offered an extension to his deal but turned it down.
