All-Time Number Debate: 2 Jim Watson

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.


Jim Watson played for the Buffalo Sabres from 1970-1972.  He was claimed in the expansion draft from the Detroit Red Wings.  Watson scored a total of four goals in his career, all with the Sabres.  None was more important though than his first.  Watson's first goal as a Sabre was the first ever goal in the organization.  He played in a total of 144 games scoring 4 goals and recording 15 assists.
