Hasek, Perreault, Mogilny

 

❤️ Sawchuk, Zetterberg, Burns (lidstrom federov tretiak dryden datsyuk etc etc etc)

 

😞Chris Neil, Raffi Torres, Tom Wilson, generally anyone who intends to injure

I want the story behind you and Terry Sawchuk (whose middle name is the same as Robert Orr’s).  I know he’s a Red Wing, and of your heart’s beating ...

Sabres:

Hasek, LaFontaine, & probably Gare (so hard to limit it to 3, but the top 2 are given).

Non-Sabres:

Dryden, LaFleur, & probably Dionne (see previous comment).

Despised Sabres:

Smehlik, Housley, Juneau (fortunately he was just a blip on the screen, but he helped keep the Sabres from winning 4 games (so far) from Dallas in '99) (& see previous comment ;)).

Despised non-Sabres:

Lindros, Marchand, Smith, Hunter, Lucic (those 5 are definitely up there, no way are we limiting that one to 3 😉 , could easily come up with a top 10 or even top 20).

Goalies fascinate me. He's one of those OG goalie types. Fascinating guy. It's partially as superficial as me finding that (somewhat exaggerated/doctored) pic of his face all stitched up (fun fact, I digitally painted using that as reference, people often accidentally use my painting in articles instead of the real picture. If you look slightly closely you'll see my messy/inexperienced brushstrokes- gives it away fast) really interesting... and partially that when I got into hockey, I really fell for the history, and to me, him and Plante and Dryden are important historical goalies. 

 

And yes, the grit and old stand up style/pads of Sawchuk goes very very nicely with that classic old Red Wings sweater. I'm all about appearances haha

Loved Rico and Bert as a kid, Mike Ramsey was my guy through the dry ‘80s, Lafontaine and Peca in the ‘90s, Miller in the ‘00s.

Forsberg outside the Sabres.

It’s odd, but I feel like I am forcing the most-hated. Must have suppressed those feelings.

I’ve not watched this in years, and my memory is suspect, and I’m an unabashed homer ....  but I have Ray something like 11-1-1 vs Domi.

3 Geoff Sanderson fans Woot Woot, I honestly thought I was the only one. 

 

 

I kinda hate Domi, but I kinda love him as the Domi and Ray thing was almost WWF like, and made it a fun game to see.... Those days are over

Interesting, if not unexpected pattern here.  "Fun" players overwhelmingly are fan favs.  Even in supposed blue collar Buffalo.

For you youngsters Billy Smith has to be in the top 3 dirtiest players to ever play the game.  Also, before there was a Linesman, Lemieux or Dale Hunter there was Tiger Williams, I'm surprised he hasn't been mentioned yet.

The infamous Lindy Ruff incident was par for the course for Billy.... that dirty SOB.

Hasek, Mogilny, Spacek for some reason, I loved that guy, he was my fave from the most recent good years.  

Wendell Clark, Theo Fleury, Jagr

Chris Neil, Alexander Semin, Patrick Roy you aren't even the second best goalie ever so everybody shut up.
