Jeanneret's Future Uncertain
Sabres fans want Rick Jeanneret to keep calling games forever. But if his recent comments are any indication, the legendary broadcaster may retire as soon as this summer.
"I don't know yet." Jeanneret told YNN. When asked if he would return next season, he said. "I don't know yet. No decisions have been made. No contracts have been signed, no decisions have been made." Jeanneret added. "No one wants me to quit. I can tell you that. So I guess it's going to be up to me to make that decision when the time comes. And I haven't made it yet."
Rick Jeanneret began broadcasting for the team on radio in 1971, assuming TV duties in 1993. Jeanneret was inducted into the Sabres hall of fame this past November.
