Multiple reports out of Buffalo suggest Sabres owner Terry Pegula is in the process of purchasing the Rochester Americans. WIVB-TV in Buffalo reports that the Sabres have signed a non-binding letter of intent to purchase the Amerks team. Amerks officials in Rochester have no comment. The Sabres are currently affiliated with the Portland Pirates, a partnership that is signed through the 2013-14 season. The Amerks had been affiliated with the Florida Panthers, but that partnership dissolved at the end of this past season. A final transfer in ownership from Curt Styres to Terry Pegula could take months to solidify.
