Before the Sabres
For many years before the NHL came to town, Buffalo had a fantastic AHL franchise called the Bisons. They won five Calder Cups in their 30 seasons, including a title in their farewell year, 1970.
For a time, the Bisons were owned by the same guys who owned the local Pepsi bottling plant, which produced perhaps the best jersey in hockey history. How can you not love this? It's a great shame that no one makes these now, at least as far as I can tell. If you find one for sale, please let me know!
