Businesses Begin Cutbacks Due to NHL Lockout

BUFFALO, NEW YORK - While the NHL lockout is a letdown for Sabres fans, it's a big kick in the gut to local employers who depend on the games.

With the lockout now pushing deep, through October 24th, a trickle-down effect has begun that's impacting the Sabres and everyone that relies on the team. Businesses are already making decisions to balance their bottom line and fear that serious cuts will be made if the lockout goes further.

"If this thing was to go long, then you're having some dramatic impacts," said Brian Drew, the general manager of Embassy Suites in Buffalo.
