Absolutely. Pegula (the owner) said during his press conference that if he wanted to make money he'd drill another oil rig (or some such), he wants to give the Sabres what they need to build a winner. Then he proceeded to get emotional over the fact that his hero, Gilbert Perreault was in attendance at the press conference. Money is no issue for the Sabres, they ate money in the Pominville deal as well. Currently, it's a top to bottom rebuild though - which, as noted, involves a lot of entry level deals.
