Tonawanda News — This is not to put down Sabres fans. To the contrary, I respect them as some of the most passionate fans among the U.S-based teams in the NHL. If you want to continue being a “Sabres watcher,” by all means enjoy it.
If you like to call yourself a “hockey fan,” however, do yourself a favor and take a good look at what else is happening on the ice throughout Western New York, at the collegiate, junior, midget and other levels, beyond the FNC or your TV screen.
In other words, if you like to believe you’re truly a “hockey fan,” go out there and prove it.Follow Niagara Gazette Sports Editor Michael Mroziak on Twitter at @MrozGazette
