ESPN magazine did a fans poll and found out the Sabres were voted #1 sports franchise in North America by American fans...way to go!

Can we name them best American hockey town now?

If the Canucks can't have it, I'll be cheering on Buffalo. Not so much because I'm a huge Buffalo fan, but because they deserved it 100% last year. They got hosed with injuries in the playoffs...and still were only 1 game away from the finals.

Based on what? That's a pretty ambiguous statement to make.

I think it was a fan vote: overall fan experience, ticket price/value, etc

It was an ESPN story on hockey, though...so I dont know how much weight you want to put into it

Granted it's not a very scientific poll, but we'll take it. Buffalo fans are incredibly loyal, and we've had to endure a lot of pain (cite other ESPN poll, page 2 article, sports teams who have suffered the most, Buffalo Bills at #1, Buffalo Sabres at #35). I don't read too much into the poll, but it's nice to know we get some recognition.
