A chat with Perreault

Attention under-30 crowd: Gilbert Perreault was spectacular on the ice and did a lot more for the Sabres than just sing a mean Elvis "Wonder of You" impersonation that you see on the HD board after every Buffalo win. I had a great chat with No. 11 that you'll see in Monday's paper. He's bullish on this year's team, especially the play of Ryan Miller.

Here's a great video compilation of Perreault highlights. Required viewing if you didn't live the Sabres' golden era of the 70s.

And here's perhaps his most ridiculous goal ever, a slo-mo replay of a one-hander he pulled one night in the mid-70s in Los Angeles (love those old gold Kings unis). Of course, back then it took us about two days to finally see a replay of it!

Great stuff.
