Buffalo Sabres History
The Buffalo Sabres joined the National Hockey League in 1970 along with the Vancouver Canucks. The Buffalo Bisons had preceded them as a hockey team in the Buffalo area, playing from 1940 to 1970 and winning the Calder Cup in their final season. The name Bisons was synonymous with teams in every sport that originated in the Buffalo area. The owners opted for a new name and chose Sabres as their new moniker along with a complete redesign of logo and uniforms.
Since the same owners owned both the Sabres and Canucks, their first draft pick, Gilbert Perreault would go to the team that hit their number on a wheel. The Canucks were given numbers 1 through 10 and the Sabres got 11-20. The league president spun the wheel and mistakenly thought it landed on ten. After further examination, it was found that the pointer actually landed on 11 and the Sabres got Perreault.
In the 1974 to 1975 season, the team would play their way all the way to the Stanley Cup finals against the Philadelphia Flyers. The games were unique in that the air conditioning has broken down in the arena and due to the unusually high temperatures in May, portions of the game were played in a heavy fog. One other notable events that happened during the finals was that during one game, Jim Lorentz, the Sabres center, saw a bat flying across the rink. He raised his stick and killed the bat making this the one and only time a player has killed a live animal during a game.
In September of 2006, the team was revamped with new uniforms and a brand new logo. The new logo met with some resistance from fans as they likened it more to a slug than a buffalo. They went so far as to nickname it "Sluggalo" and "Buffaslug" and to petition against it by getting more than 30,000 signatures. Even with all the resistance, the new logo and jerseys topped the sales list for NHL merchandise. This remained their team logo until 2010 when the team received yet another upgrade to the buffalo with two crossed sabers below it on a blue field.
