Early '90 Sabres

Just wondering, who were the top defensemen for the Sabres in the late '80s, early '90s?

I seem to remember Bodger and Svoboda playing a large role on the Sabres D after Housley was moved.

Any help would be appreciated.

Mike Ramsey was likely the best defenseman they had in their own zone. Bodger made Housley expendable (at least in Meehan's mind), Krupp (until dealt in the LaFontaine trade) developed into a pretty good 2-way defenseman and superior penalty killer. Smehlik was a pretty good find as a 2-way performer up until he tore up his knee. Svoboda wasn't bad....

After that it's a lot of guys with unfulfilled promise (Brown, Cooper, Tsygurov, Miller) or under-utilized talent (Sutton, Haller, Ledyard) or youngsters dealt only to reach their potential elsewhere (Boucher, Carney), or veteran roleplaying filler (Moller, Wells, Muni, Huddy).
