List Rules Vote up the best hockey players based on their careers with the Buffalo Sabres.

The Buffalo Sabres were founded in 1970 (along with Vancouver Canucks) when the NFL decided to expand to 14 teams. The Sabres have been to the Stanley Cup finals twice, but never won, losing to Philly in 1975 and Dallas in 1999. The "French Connection," consisting of Gilbert Perreault, Rick Martin, and René Robert, all had their jerseys retired at the same time they did, and even had a statue erected at Niagara Falls.
