All-Time Number Debate: 1 Don Edwards

So many Sabres have come and gone in the organization over the past 39 years.  But who was the best wearing their number.  This is going to settle that debate.  Using the Buffalo Sabres Alumni listing of all-time uniform numbers we will post a player a day based on their number.  After a certain uniform number is up, we put the vote to you.


Don Edwards wore the number one for the Buffalo Sabres between 1978-1982.  During that time, Edwards was a fairly talented goaltender for the Sabres.  He played in 282 games and had a career record of 140-76-59.  Edwards led the Sabres to the playoffs in each of the six seasons during this stretch, although only got farther than the second round only once.  He shared the Vezina trophy in the 1979-1980 season with Bob Sauve.
