Here's a little known fact: only 11 times in their history have the Buffalo Sabres failed to qualify for the NHL playoffs. 11 times in 39 years. That means that roughly 72% of the time, the Sabres have had a chance to win the Stanley Cup.
That also means that the Buffalo Sabres have had ample opportunity to collect their share of playoff heroes. Any decent Sabres fan will recall the French Connection during the run to the 1975 Cup Finals against Philly. Everyone remembers what Dominik Hasek meant to the Blue & Gold (and sometimes the Black and Red).
I hope that the rest of the NHL pays very close attention to this article. Its purpose is to point out that you never really know where the next Brad May will come from.
