Are any of your favorite 3 players in the NHL actually Sabres?

Some of my favorite players in the League:

Ryan Callahan (Gamer we wish the Sabres had)
Gaborik
Milan Lucic (Come on, you'd love him if he was a Sabre and ran Ray Emery a few years ago)
Ovechkin
Chara (We all hope Meyers develops into him)
Chris Mother Fing Neil (Dude is a rusty nail in the Sabres' eye)
Eric Stall
Plekanec
Leino (with philly)

The guys I hate seeing the Sabres play against are also the guys I love.

I honestly have a hard time listing any Sabre as one of my favorite players.

Anybody else?

Vanek is my favorite player in the NHL at the moment so I think I'm good.

There really isn't any Sabre who I think is great. Are there really fans on other teams that saying "Gee, I wish we could trade for [fill in Sabre name here]"? Maybe Myers. Eh.

Players I like most:

Ovechkin
Crosby
Sedin (can't remember which one)
Chara
Pronger
Hartnell
Datsyuk
Parise
Staal (can't remember which one)
Thomas
Biron
Avery
Giroux
Malkin

Vanek
B. Ryan

I am obviously a troll Daz28 (who has 934 posts in just over one year), note my # of posts in 4 years, I must not be a true fan with so few. What was I thinking to dare make a comment on the Buffalo Sabres section of HFBOARDS.com. Learn to use some punctuation while much liking your pizza.

I was just watching the Rangers vs. Panthers game and enjoyed watching Callahan. I wish the Sabres had a natural leader like him....

Just curious how many other Sabres fans can say that any of the CURRENT Sabres are honestly one of their top three favorite players in the league.

Vanek comes close, and laugh as you may, Hecht historically has been one of my favorites, despite hovering around the 20 goal mark. I haven't been a Sabres fan since I was born or anything, but I have been around long enough to see great players come and go. CURRENTLY I love none of these Sabres.

Seriously dude, 8 posts in 5 years. All your favorites are mortal Sabre enemies. Everything is worded like a bot? You can't see why I would be suspicious. I played along, so just chill your jets. I'm sorry I wasted your 10th post making you rant.

I don't dispute your premise but having Neil on that list should get you banned from the city of buffalo.

Vanek is the one Sabre for me. Other than that, my other two favorite to watch are Lucic (as stated above, he's just nasty and I hope Kassian develops into a similar player).

Lindstrom- A lot of it is because of his skill and smarts, but part of it is just... He's how old and still one of the best?

In terms of goalies, I love watching Lundqvist. In my opinion, he's hands down the best goaltender in the league.

Honorable mention: Crosby- when healthy he's my favorite to watch, he just hasn't been for about a year or year and a half or whatever it is, and I don't think he'll ever be the same.

Favorite of all time to watch- Drury in his Sabre days. He really was Captain Clutch and he played smart hockey all the time in his years here.

Wow Neil ??? He is on my top 3 too but in most hated !!!!

Every #1 favorite player i had since i watch hockey as been a Sabre when he became on top of my list. It started with Gilbert Perreault, Phil Housley, Pat Lafontaine, Alex Mogilny and Tim Connolly.

Now my top 3 so far look like this.

1- Tim Connolly
2- Evgeni Malkin
3- Getzlaf-Kane-Toews-Jagr-Horton

Most likely my next favorite Sabre will be between Myers and Kassian

It's Lidstrom. Nick Lidstrom. I'll assume you hit the 'n' by accident.

no kidding, was thinking the same. Love his reasoning for Lucic, if he was on our team and ran another goalie we'd love him...yes because all hockey fans love dirty plays

And Chris Neil? Are you kidding me? That guy is as soft as butter. Not only is he horribly skilled, but as a tough guy he never fights anyone his size, always picks the smallest guys from the scrum and can't win a fight against an opposing heavy weight to save his life. The guys a joke.

Dude couldn't even spell Myers right. Add to the fact he says list 3 names then lists 9 the majority of which are hated by this fan base.

What I think happened here is we basically bypassed the trolling, and made our own game, which turned out to be kinda fun. Thanx troll!

I like a lot of players from other teams. And it's hard to make a list with just 3 of my favourite Players allowed.

But I give it a try:

The list has to start with Vanek. He is the Player I watch the most, he is one reason why I get up at 1 o' clock am to watch the sabres. Besides he is a country-mate ;-)

Second on the list is Grabner. I have followed his developement from the start of his adventure in northern America until today. His speed and his shot makes me excited everytime he touches the puck. Besides he is Austrian too.

Last but not least on this short list: Zack Kassian. When we drafted that guy I jumped through the room because he was my favourite prospect that draft and he is everything the sabres lack at the moment. But i wish he would play more physical at NHL level.

So two out of three are actually Sabres. Does that mean I'm a Sabres fan?
