Sabres owner Terry Pegula isn’t about to risk stepping out of line.

When asked this morning about the current CBA negotiations between the NHL and the players, Pegula would only tell the Buffalo News: “I can’t tell you anything, just that talks continue. I don’t want to lose draft picks.”

Presumably losing draft picks would be a fine the NHL could levy on an individual owner for undermining the owners’ collective position.

Miami Heat owner Micky Arison was fined $500,000 for comments he made during last year’s NBA lockout.
