'The CD is a collection of the 50 best saves, goals, fights and other calls that Jeanneret has made famous over his 34-year career as the voice of the Sabres. Among the 50 clips are favorites like “La-La-La-LaFontaine,” “May Day!”, “the shot heard round the hockey world,” “top shelf where momma hides the cookies!” and of course, “Roll the Highlight Film!"'

'Mair might be the last player called upon in a shootout. His minutes rarely reach double digits. Yet without him, the Sabres might not be on their run. They enter tonight's game versus the Anaheim Mighty Ducks as the NHL's hottest team, having gone 8-1 with a shootout loss in their past 10 games.'
'Sabres coach Lindy Ruff is targeting Sunday's road game with the Minnesota Wild to reinsert Briere.'
'The Ducks haven't played on the road in more than two weeks.'
‘And to think this was a guy who couldn’t make the Sabres roster in training camp. A guy every other NHL team saw on the waiver wire in October and didn’t want. A guy who scored 19 goals in 18 American Hockey League games but needed Taylor Pyatt’s broken wrist to get promoted.’
‘If Miller is given medical clearance to return to action this evening, Sabres coach Lindy Ruff said on Wednesday that he wants Miller to play himself into game shape with the Amerks. “With Rochester playing this weekend, it would be a great thing,” Ruff said, referring to the Amerks’ three-game weekend (home with Houston on Friday, at Binghamton Saturday, at Toronto on Sunday).’
‘”You’re always one of the best dressed guys on the team. So, what’s your favorite designer and what’s the most you’ve ever spent on one article of clothing?”
Kotalik: “That’s a tough question because I really like shopping a lot. I like to dress nice. I like when other people are dressing nice. I like a lot of stuff. If I can name one designer, it would be Armani.”‘
‘Part of the reason for Buffalo’s success is linked to its farm club, the Rochester Americans of the AHL. Rochester is celebrating its 50th season in the AHL and it will be hard to duplicate what happened last season. With the NHL season on hiatus because of the lockout, the Sabres loaded up the Americans with young NHLers from their roster who would have had a setback in their development had they not played in the minors.’
