The Florida Panthers play a horribly insensitive video before the Sabres game

No wonder Terry Pegula, the Buffalo Sabres owner, was angry.

Before the Florida Panthres-Sabres game, the Panthers played a pre-game video that contrasted scenes of beautiful Florida whether with the recent snowstorm that buried the Buffalo region.According to the Miami Herald, Pegula could be overheard telling Panthers GM Dale Tallon (pictured): “People died in that storm. That’s not funny.” At least 13 people died in the storms that paralyzed the region.

From the Herald:

Tallon said he didn’t see the video — he wasn’t in the press box at the time — but was told about it before meeting with Pegula and Murray during the second intermission.
“I can’t comment on it because I haven’t seen it and don’t really know what’s in it,” Tallon told the Miami Herald after walking away from the Buffalo management group.
“But if they’re upset, rightfully so.”
