MROZIAK: A tale of two sports scenes

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — Meanwhile in Buffalo, several prominent business leaders recently bought a full page ad in Business First to tell the media and public to quit criticizing Sabres owner Terry Pegula. That's how caustic the atmosphere has become, just two years after Pegula brought the same warm fuzzy feelings experienced at Niagara yesterday.

The big difference is, Casey didn't make brash promises of championship glory. The Sabres once told us their purpose would be to win the Stanley Cup — correction, Stanley Cups, as we were once told would happen in Hockey Heaven.

That can still happen some day, but only if the Sabres players and management heed the words that came from Monteagle Ridge on Monday: "we care."
