Adam Kirshenblatt: HHOF Making the Case: Alexander Mogilny

The next player I would like to make a case for to enter the Hockey Hall of Fame is Alexander Mogilny. Unlike the first two players, Mogilny cannot be defined as part of any one team throughout his career having played six seasons with the Sabres, and three each with the Canucks, Maple Leafs, and Devils. However, before I can talk about his NHL career let me first look at his time...

From One Russian To Another

A top prospect from Russia, a highly touted Sabres draft pick, puts on an impressive display as his team medals at the World Juniors.  Seemingly no time later, it’s opening day in the NHL - and he’s in the lineup to start his first season of facing the fiercest opposition the world has to offer.  This seemingly prodigal talent, brought in to help a Buffalo team in need of...

Kevin Freiheit: What Swados meant to Buffalo

An important part of the Buffalo Sabres franchise is no longer with us. Robert Swados, 93, passed away Friday morning. His name is not as common as Golisano or Pegula, but he's a big reason why Buffalo even has a team. Here's a clip from a story that has been published on Sabres Hockey Central: Swados’ best work, however, happened behind the scenes. For example...

What Happened to Alexander the Great?

What has happened to Alexander the Great?  Once the league's best goal scorer after a season for the ages, he has become mortal again, seeing his goal totals drop to 32 goals and even lower the next season.  The big, fast Russian winger also has had no trouble scoring in the playoffs, but can't seem to get his team deep into the spring.  It's certainly not for lack...

Ex-NHLer Alexander Mogilny’s Florida Condo: $6.8MM

Alexander Mogilny is one of the best Ruskies to ever play in the NHL, skating first with the Buffalo Sabres and then with the Vancouver Canucks, Toronto Maple Leafs and twice with the New Jersey Devils. He was also one of the first Russian defectors to land in the league and judging by his Miami Beach condo, it looks like he’s a big fan of living out that American dream. No, this...
