Remembering Rico

Have to give it up to the Sabres for the way they handled the immediate aftermath of Rick Martin's sudden death and the way they're continuing to remember the great left winger of the French Connection.

Today was team picture day, with the players donning their 40th anniversary blue jerseys for the official time capsule group shot. It was the first time, of course, new owner Terry Pegula was in the front row in the owner's chair and Pegula added a nice touch to the shot by holding a while No. 7 Martin jersey facing the camera.

In addition, the Sabres have painted a blue No. 7 outlined in gold in honor of Martin on the ice behind both nets for the remainder of the season. Next Thursday's memorial service in the arena figures to be a stirring tribute as well.
