It was too much for me to say one of these guys is the worst of the group. As the Sabres go, these 10 players (plus my 11th man, Gragnani) have been huge cogs in the machine that is the Buffalo Sabres.
Regehr is under-appreciated in many circumstances. Not many have heard his name said, because he isn't a scoring defenseman.
He is the defenseman that is to compliment Tyler Myers, who has become almost too offensive in his style of game.
Without someone to back him, Myers would look worse than he does right now. Top it all off with 17 blocked shots through seven games and you have an unsung hero in Robyn Regehr.
Nathan Gerbe went from fourth liner to major offensive force last year when he earned his spot on the lineup and hasn't lost it since.
If you want to see the hardest skater on the team, Gerbe is that.
He never stops moving and is going to continue to find success. He should move up this list as the season progresses.
Overall, you have a solid group of players who need a hair more productivity from six to 10, but you can't complain with the early results.
It's been a successful start to the 2011-2012 campaign, and let's hope that soon enough more of the players crowd this list at the top.
