Sabres not playing preseason game at Rochester in 2016-2017 season

This is really a missed opportunity because I think it's always good to have Rochester involved with the Buffalo Sabres. The Western New York community should be sticking together. Even though the Blue Cross Arena is considered "old" it had renovations as recently as 1998 and it does hold a higher capacity than the arena in State College, PA.

The Buffalo Sabres say they wanted to bring an NHL preseason game to downtown Rochester for the first time in more than a decade, but an antiquated arena with inadequate facilities prompted them to take the game to Penn State University.
Instead of a Sept. 26 exhibition game between the Sabres and Minnesota Wild at Blue Cross Arena at the Community War Memorial, the teams will play at Pegula Ice Arena in State College, Pennsylvania."

Bring NHL back to Cleveland!
