There's been plenty of things pro and con written and said about Buffalo during the tournament, as Gene Warner wrote about in today's paper. But the words of IIHF blogger Szymon Szemberg certainly resonate with us.
Go to this link to read Szemberg's full entry that Warner discussed (be sure to scroll down to the item headlined, "Buffalo deserves better").
