The Buffalo Sabres All-Star Team: Second Line Scoring Forwards

New, comments

It's the next installment in our summer series designed to answer the question: If the Sabres franchise put out a full all-time team featuring twelve forwards, six defensemen, two goalies, and a coaching staff, who would be on it? Today, we ask you to nominate the second line scoring forwards.

Last week, we began our summer quest to fill out a full team of Buffalo Sabres All-Stars. Once per week, we're asking you to nominate and vote on a different aspect of that team, from the top scorers, to the minute eaters on defense, all the way down to the coaching staff.

Last week's vote for the top line scorers was surprisingly close, but in the end, the French Connection beat out the time traveling line of Perreault, Mogilny, and Vanek by a single vote (and they say one vote doesn't matter). The chemistry and skill already present within a line whose jerseys are all hanging in the rafters together should be formidable on the top line indeed.

Here's who we've voted in so far - these players are no longer eligible for nomination:

Forwards
Rick Martin - Gilbert Perreault - Rene Robert

Today's vote is for the second forward line - these guys may not have made the top line, but they're still darn good players and deadly scorers in their own right.

How To Vote

  1. Search the comments to see if someone already nominated your players? If they have - just hit the "rec" button on their post to cast your vote! If not, go to step two.

  2. In the Subject field of your comment, nominate your three players by typing:

    Nominate: Martin-Perreault-Robert

  3. You can then fill in the Body field of your comment with your reasoning or other commentary.

Please make sure to follow the guidelines - any post not following the above format will not be considered, and only one nomination per user will be allowed. Voting on this trio of players will remain open until next Wednesday, when the next post goes up. Finally, try not to get ahead of the post at hand - other lines, pairings, tenders, and coaches will be coming later in the summer.
