I looked it up after giving it sincere thought; my guess was wrong.

 

In the entire thread so far, only one of the three Sabrepedes has been guessed correctly.

 

Not helpful clue: it was Tyler Ennis that was hung out to dry being forced to cover three open opponents, two of which were at the crease, the third of which was at the high slot.

I can see the first guy's number real easily in the picture, but the other two I have no idea about

Thornton. Myers. 26 -- I thought Vanek, but then that's got to be the Force: Matty Moulson! 20? Niedermayer? Nooo. D'Agostini?

People always knock Rolston's system, but it was unique. They should have given it a chance.

I heard they were working on the "flying V" in practice, too

Not so helpful clue: he was twice the man he was the first time.

So a guy who had to change numbers and is now double or half that at the time of The Pede

Well if 57 is on the ice isn't Tallinder somewhere in it ? 

Myers, tallinder vanek would be my guess.

Tallinder , Moulson, Myers then

edit: forgot we traded Vanek quite fast for Moulson but they both wore 26 right ?

It's hard to believe we could downgrade from Vanek on a defensive-awareness standpoint, but we certainly did with Moulson

 

I remember watching a Sabres preview out-of-market. They showed a clip of Moulson playing defense. He was falling down trying to change direction covering a pass from the point to the boards. The commentary was something like "having defensive responsibilities like that- this is anti-Matt Moulson..."

So it was tallinder, moulson, myers? Hard to believe Moulson has been a Sabre that long...

I'm almost certain Vanek was in there.
