Heard some of this on the NHL Network on XM.  Thought it would be fun to nominate players, coaches, things and places for each letter for both the hockey in general and the Sabres. Thegoal is to find the hockey/Sabres person, place or thing that you most associate with that Letter. For people we can use either their first or last name to satisfy the letter.  For example Uwe Krupp could be nominated for either U or K.   Note: If you feel that you have a better idea then what has previously nomintated, go ahead and nominate something/someone else and we’ll put it to a vote later.

For example:  Letter A - I nominate “the Aud” for the Sabres and Al Arbor for Hockey in general.  For contested choices, I’ll start a poll to get Sabrespace approval .

Lets start with A-F.

A.  The Aud (Sabres); Al Arbour (hockey)

B. Briere; Bobby (Hull and Orr) beats out Bowman (Stan and Scotty) Wow!

C. Crozier; the Cup

D.  Dominator; Dominator

E. Eichel; Esposito

F. The French Connection; The French Connection

G. Gare; The Great One

H. Housely, Howe

I. Imlach; Iginla

J. Jeanneret,  Johnstown Chiefs

K. Knox, Kharlamov (Kurri?)

L. Luce (LaFontaine?)/Lemieux (LaFleur, Lidstrom)

M. Meehan (Player, GM, Agent) (Miller, Martin (part of French Connection)/Montreal Canadians

N. Ted Nolan / Neidermayer 

O. Organist Norm Wullen / Orr

P. Pominville / Potvin or Penguins

Q.  /Quackenbush (HOFer former Bruin)

R. Ramse(a)y / Richard

S. Scheonfeld / Stastny (Sutter?)

T. Taro Tsujimoto of the Tokyo Katanas (Tenor Joe Byron) / Tretiak

U. Uwe Krupp / Norm Ullman (HOFer Red Wings)

V. Vanek/Vezina

W. Winter Classic / Hayley Wickenheiser

X. 

Y. Yuri Khmylev / Yzerman

Z. Zhitnik/Zubov

I would go with

B. Biron (he has been an ever present figure during my Sabres fandom), and Bowman (Scotty and Stan, the family is NHL royalty)

I like Bowman instead of Broduer. Good call.

Conversely, no way I’m picking Biron over the Beer Garden.😀

My first thought was fried bologna sandwiches but I guess that can be F.

D.  Dryden, Dudacek, Dale, Drury, Draft Lottery (1 for each decade; suppose the '70's could be Don instead, but figured the last name worked better).

PS - Arbour is spelled w/ an 'u'.  He's not a tree. 😉

I missed the part where I was supposed to nominate something for hockey in general as well. So for C I will add Cup, as in Stanley for hockey.

Mine work for both Sabres AND hockey in general.  Which is another reason why Dryden fits the 70's better than Don. 😉

Yeah.  Dom's better for '90's than Dale.

Maybe let’s us use Hawerchuk for H when we get there?

E is for Eichel, here is hoping that he dominates the NHL through the 2020’s.

What Hockey “E”?

Hawerchuk works for Sabres.  Tough to put anyone over Howe for hockey/NHL overall.

E - Edmonton

I was trying to say I hope that by the time Jack is done here, everyone considers him both Buffalo and the NHL. But if you make me pick, I’ll say E is for Esposito, both Phil and Tony(my all time favorite opposing player)

 I like it. The Broad Sheet Bullies are a great nomination.  They truly defined their era in hockey.  Ask the Soviets about playing those Flyers teams.

I met those guys at Chef’s in their hey day and still have the autographs.

B - Bowman: simply the master

B - Bill Barber: A Flyer great! I met him in Springfield, MA. He was GM of Springfield AHL club. I went up to his box and started story telling about watching him beat my beloved Sabres in '75 for the cup. He was astounded by my telling him this story. I will never forget.

I can’t believe no one has nominated the most obvious F for the Sabres.  
Hint: The Sabres F should also be the hockey F
