BSN Summer Awards: The Rayzor

8

Yeah, yeah, we could’ve gone with Adam Mair for this trophy’s name.

Mair, if you recall anything if at all about him, was fined $2500 bucks for a 2008 tirade in Buffalo, when he tried to pummel Chris Neil of the Ottawa Senators with f-bombs.  In a hallway between locker rooms.  That was pretty awesome, Mairsy – a tirade fit for the ages.  However, in the spirit of nobody caring about Mair anymore, this award will be named after the legendary pugilist of the Blue and Gold and Bloody Red, Rob Ray.

"No one makes Rayzor bleed his own blood!"

So, sports fans, if you haven’t figured it out for yourselves yet, this contentious award goes to the Sabres member/player who unleashed the most endearing tirade/emotional meltdown during the 2010-11 season.

The winner receives my very own slightly scratched up copy of “The Razor’s Edge.”  Vote responsibly!

"The story of an American pilot traumatized by his experiences in World War I, who sets off in search of some transcendent meaning in his life." What, not what you expected?

Before we get to the nominees, let us pause to consider a little bit of the legacy behind this award.  Over the years dressed in a Sabres uniform, Rob Ray became highly regarded for his huge humanitarian efforts with WNY charities powerful influence on the Sabres bench ability to sit on the bench undaunted until the crowd got bored and started chanting “WE WANT RAY”
