LEADING OFF: Sabres’ pricing adds salt to wound

Chris Drury and Daniel Briere may no longer wear the blue and gold, but they’ll still bring in the cash for the Buffalo Sabres.

The team announced Monday its variable ticket prices for the upcoming season. Briere’s return with the Philadelphia Flyers on Dec. 21 and Drury’s date in HSBC Arena on Feb. 10 both fall under the “gold” (read: highest) pricing structure. Fans will have to pony up at least $68 for a single ticket on those nights, while the most expensive seat in the house will cost $203.

It’s nice to see owner Tom Golisano and Co. are finding a way to keep the small-market Sabres competitive. It’s just a shame they had to kick the fans while they were already down about the former co-captains’ departures.
