Tell me about Tom Barrasso as a Buffalo Sabre

Hey guys,

Hoping to walk with someone here down memory lane for a moment. I'm a Penguins fan that saw Barrasso play with Pittsburgh - where, after the 2 Cups, he was kind of up and down and injured a bit. But was terrific early on for us. I know he has a lot of notoriety as a Sabre, he was represented heavily in the goalie awards (All-Star Team, Vezina voting, etc.) in his early days with Buffalo, I believe he was on the '84 Canada Cup roster for the Americans. Do any older more experienced fans remember Barrasso in Buffalo and what can you tell me about him? What made him special? What made him get such high recognition? How did he compare to other goalies in the 80's that were prominent (Liut, Peeters, Fuhr, Smith earlier on, Roy later on, etc.)

Any memories would be terrific, thanks!
