BSN Contest: Name That Sabre!

22

How’s about a little game-show style history?

Today, we’ve got a special little challenge for you readers out there.  In the picture below, there is a former Buffalo Sabre slightly obscured being pulverized by Peter Zezel and Rick Tocchet.

Not the picture. Keep reading.

 

Your challenge is to analyze the photo, consult your deep Sabres fanaticism, and figure out who is inside that Broad Street Bully Bludgeon sandwich.

Leave your answers in the comments section below.

The first correct response receives “future considerations!”  In other words, the prize might be something great, or it might be nothing at all – it all depends on several determining factors my mood.

And now, contestants, here is your mystery Sabre:

One Sabres Sandwhich please and hold the mayo BSN Contest: Name That Sabre!buffalosabresnation.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/One-Sabres-Sandwhich-please-and-hold-the-mayo-199x300.jpg 199w" sizes="(max-width: 300px) 100vw, 300px" />

At least one sock looks unscathed.

We’ll give you one hint: this hit occurred during the ’87-’88 season.  Now, go scour that old roster and give us your best shot!

Go Sabres.

Oh.... you're too late!

The answer has been announced (check our main page). I admire your never-say-die attitude though (especially after the Sabres did say "we will now die" in Game Seven this year), so well done to you, sir! Well done indeed.

Oh, and you're incorrect.

Maguire!

Nope!

Thank goodness it's not him, frankly this is the last name Sabres fans should want to hear - since he's been trying to get a NHL team in our neighborhood since he retired.

Mark Napier!

That is incorrect, but the simple fact that you actually know he exists (outside of Pegula's Alumni Day roster) is possibly worth future considerations in itself.

Good try!

Housley is incorrect. Future considerations are still up for grabs!

The only player I could think of other than Andreychuck from that year is Mike Foligno, so that's my guess.
