The Buffalo Sabres All-Star Team: Fourth Line Forwards
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 fourth line forwards.
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 third line forwards filled out the rest of the prominent franchise names, with Dale Hawerchuk centering Dave Andreychuk and Danny Gare. It's a heck of a third line, with a Hall of Famer in Hawerchuk and another borderline player in Andreychuk. Put Gare in there and it's a third line that can help in all situations.
Here's who we've voted in so far - these players are no longer eligible for nomination:
Rick Martin - Gilbert Perreault - Rene Robert
Alexander Mogilny - Pat LaFontaine - Thomas Vanek
Dave Andreychuk - Dale Hawerchuk - Danny Gare
Today's vote is for the fourth forward line - this line can be whatever you'd like it to be. Are there any other scoring players you think deserve a spot? Or should this line include the checkers and enforcers? Use your votes and recs to help us figure it out.
How To Vote
- 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.
- In the Subject field of your comment, nominate your three players by typing:
- 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.
