It's kind of their player of the game award they give internally...

Here's Drew Stafford wearing it, but I'm not sure what he ever did this year to deserve it.

Awards:
Taking a page from last year's Miami Vice blazer, golden helmet and the pigeon prior to that, it's the "award" given by the players to who they think was the player of the game.

It's a beaut.

But there's more:

Buffalo, N.Y. -- On the heels of the Buffalo Sabres' decision to fire head coach Lindy Ruff, PETA is calling on the team to earn back the trust of its fan base by doing away with something else: the logo-embroidered fur coat that the team recently started awarding to its "player of the game." As PETA explained in a letter sent today to team owner Terry Pegula, people who care about animals don't want to see their favorite players wearing the pelts of animals who were likely bludgeoned, strangled, electrocuted, and even skinned alive.
But there' more......

"There's nothing less sporting and more grotesque than wearing someone else's skin," says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. "PETA is telling the Sabres that if they want to move forward and leave the past behind, they need to stop draping their top-scoring players in cruel caveman couture."

You would think for a creditable organization @Peta that the VP would have done its due diligence and not have accused an animal loving....

Team with such inappropriate accusations and realize the coat is Faux from @HM #Sabres #BeatIt

Clearly Otter's penchant for verbal repartee extends well beyond the ice. Zing!

This coat and Scott's dumb photo bombs could be mildly amusing if they were a decent team.
