Well Deserved Honor For LaFontaine

from the Buffalo News,
Pat LaFontaine spent six special though sometimes painful years with the Buffalo Sabres; tonight he returns to HSBC Arena to watch his name and number raised to the rafters. There's a tendency on tribute days to overstate the achievements of the honoree. It can seem like the next step is canonization. Some days, though, even the flowery speeches fall short of conveying the impact of the person. Today is one of those days. Canonization? In Buffalo this month, there are two St. Patty's Days.
