The people have spoken; It’s finally time to name The Most Insignificant Sabre of the Last Decade.Garnering 47 percent of the votes, former Sabres defenseman Radoslav Hecl is our winner. It was never a contest, with Hecl leading the voting right from the get-go.
Really, was there any question? He couldn’t have been more insignificant. Less than a calendar year with the organization, no points, and a crazy last name to boot (For the record, it’s pronounced “HEHSH-uhl,” according to the 19th Annual Edition of the NHL Pronunciation Guide, which is edited by Mike Emrick. Really. I’m not making it up.)
Final results of the poll:
- Radoslav Hecl 47 percent
- Domenic Pittis 13 percent (tie)
- Jason Holland 13 percent (tie)
- Jean-Luc Grand-Pierre 10 percent
- Paul Kruse 8 percent
- Chris Taylor 4 percent
The Goose’s Roost would like to thank everyone who participated in the series, especially those who voted.
Any feedback would be appreciated. Do you want to see similar series run at The Goose’s Roost in the future? Maybe something with the Bills? Let us know, because it’s a loooooonng summer.
UPDATE: Ryan has come up with a proper way to immortalize Hecl, but only because he has far too much time on his hands.
