The Buffalo Sabres All-Star Team: Coaches

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 coaching trio.

A few weeks ago, 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 goalies saw Dominik Hasek and Ryan Miller voted in as the starting and backup goalies, respectively. I'd like to see any other team match that pair in net.

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

Forwards
Rick Martin - Gilbert Perreault - Rene Robert
Thomas Vanek - Pat LaFontaine - Alexander Mogilny
Dave Andreychuk - Dale Hawerchuk - Danny Gare
Craig Ramsay - Don Luce - Mike Foligno

Defensemen
Mike Ramsey - Bill Hajt
Jim Schoenfeld - Phil Housley
Alexei Zhitnik - Jay McKee

Goaltenders
Dominik Hasek - Ryan Miller

Today's vote is for the head coach and two assistant coaches - We're looking to nominate three coaches, one head coach and two assistants. The head coach must have been an actual head coach of the Sabres at some point, but the assistant coaches can be either former head coaches or former assistants. Nominate the head coach first, followed by the assistants, as seen below.

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! (Winners are determined by number of recs.) If not, go to step two.

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

    Nominate: Ruff-Corsi-Patrick

  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 pair of players will remain open until next Wednesday, when the the final roster will be posted.
