10) Mike Ramsey

Ramsey played third-most games in franchise history (911) and most by a defenseman. Former first-round draft pick widely remembered as best shot blocker in franchise history.

9) Ryan Miller

Broke most of Hasek’s team records in goal and is the franchise’s all-time leader in games (540), wins (284), saves (14,847) and minutes (31,659). Second in shutouts (28) and save percentage (.916).

8) Danny Gare

Gare was twice a 50-goal scorer, he tied for the league lead with 56 in the 1979-80 season. In his eight seasons with Buffalo, Gare notched 267 goals.

7) Dave Andreychuk

Andreychuk made his living in front of the net and on the power play, using his massive frame to create space and do the dirty work.

6) Rick Martin

Martin scored 695 points in 681 games in Buffalo which is impressive. Drafted fifth overall in the 1971 draft, Rico played in Buffalo for 10 different seasons.

5) Pat LaFontaine

In six seasons with the Sabres, the Hall of Fame inductee only played 268 games for the blue and gold. But, boy, did he make his mark in those few games—registering 385 points. His best season came alongside Alexander Mogilny as he registered 148 points, the highest single-season mark by an American-born hockey player.

4) Alexander Mogilny

Mogilny put up a monstrous season in 1992-93, recording an absolutely ridiculous 76 goals. Then, he teamed up with LaFontaine to give Buffalo maybe their greatest one-two punch in history.

3) Phil Housley

In his rookie season with the Sabres, the 18-year-old scored an imposing 66 points in 77 games. From there, he went on to produce 1,232 points in 1,495 games.

2) Dominik Hasek

Hasek accrued an insane amount of individual hardware in his time in Buffalo. That included six Vezina trophies, two Hart trophies, two William Jennings trophies and two Lester Pearson trophies. In addition, Hasek had the best years of his career in Buffalo, posting a 2.22 GAA and .926 SV per cent, both of which remain Sabre records.

1) Gilbert Perreault

In 1970 Perrault was the first draft pick in Sabres history, and over 50 years later, he is the greatest Sabre of them all. Perreault made nine All-Star Game appearances in addition to winning one Lady Byng Trophy and the Calder Trophy.
