And the Winner Is...

by Anne

The question was posed in a week long poll in the left sidebar of this blog:

"There's been a lot said about the Sabres' emotionless dressing room. Which of these players from the NHL known to play with emotion would you add to the team?"

The winner, with 17% of the vote was:

Mr. Wiz Wear himself, James Wisniewski

I have to admit I was surprised at the selection of Wiz. I really thought it would be Kesler, but he came in 4th behind Drew Miller and Matt Greene who were tied for 2nd. And I only voted for Greener twice, so others were giving Greener some love as well.

Wiz was a huge fan favorite in Chicago before being traded to Anaheim where, no doubt, he's quite popular. He's a solid defenseman and he gives a great interview, something every team needs more of, I'm sure. Here Wiz discusses his name's pronunciation, Adam Burish in a bar fight and the size of his noggin:

Here he is with Bur, Tazer and Soupy:

Also, Wiz is an RFA this summer. Drat. Let's convince Anaheim to sign him, then trade him and Drew Miller to the Sabres for... a 4th round pick. They'll totally agree to that, right?


  1. He is by far a good choice and even though I'm disappointed that Sharpie didn't get it at least one former Blackhawk did.

  2. Well he is a bit adorable but I dont like men in pink. Let us girls have one color...

  3. You think they would give us Drew Miller for a 4th round pick because of Ryan. I mean, come on! The Kostitsyn brothers play on the same team!
