Re: Kevin O & Scott Nichol to Enter Amerks HOF

Gerry Cheevers holds the record I believe for most wins (48) and he played every game that season. (I don't think Miller broke that record..might be wrong) I agree with Natural on Marty Biron...he had a nice career here. Pittis too absolulely. We went to Finals in 1999 and 2000 (Providence and Hart...

Re: Kevin O & Scott Nichol to Enter Amerks HOF

He never did anything in the Playoffs in Rochester, Buffalo, St. Louis, Vancouver need I go on. He lost the Gold Medal game in the Olympics to Canada. He did win the Hobey Baker Trophy. Bid deal. He was never one of my favorite Amerks. If they are putting any goaltenders in I would put Marty Biron ...

Didn't he set a franchise record for most wins in a season in 2004/05 en route to winning the Aldege Bastien Memorial Award? Hardly seems loser-esque to me.

Re: Elmira Jackals ceasing operations at end of season.

Is this paving the way for the Amerks to relocate there? Surely that arena has an adequate number of locker rooms, and it already has an attached practice rink... :geek:

Re: Confirmed: Murray calls ALL shots. Including lineups

The NBA would never work in Buffalo. They tried it way back when if you recall. Well, in fairness the Braves didn't work back in the day due to some alleged political reasons between the Sabres, Braves, and college basketball at the Aud. Also, at the time the Buffalo area colleges were bigger deals...

Re: History of lease problems. Statement from Barnhart.

You must work for the city :D Actually, the building is a bomb shelter...built like a fortress. doing what you suggest is not only unlikely but very costly even if they could do it. What I will agree with you on is the location....they would be hard pressed to find a better one, if they are trying ...

and another snarky comment from a non-Amerks fan. thats ok...we're used to it. Not really. Just going forward since players like Scott Nichol won't be in one organization for a prolonged period of time, it just makes one wonder what the next generation of AHL HOF caliber talent will look like.

He likes that pic.
In that case, I retract it. I thought it was some sort of a inside joke/troll pic :oops:

Re: Confirmed: Murray calls ALL shots. Including lineups

I think John Anderson was PROBABLY the last one with Chicago a few years back. Still... an NHL GM should hire an assistant GM and AHL HC he trusts and who are with the team every day. Agreed. It's really ideal for an NHL GM to hire an AHL coaching staff who he can give autonomy to, who can give his...
