The Sabres have announced that, in addition to inviting back every single alumni for the team’s final home game on April 8, they are introducing a new fan-orientated award.
Here’s what they have to say about “The 7th Man” award:
All attending alumni will be honored in a pre-game on-ice ceremony that will also include presentation of the 2010-11 Sabres MVP, Rookie of the Year and Hardest Working Player awards. In addition, an online vote will provide Sabres fans with the opportunity to make their choice for “The 7th Man” – the team’s Fan of the Year Award. Details of the online voting process will be announced shortly.
These are all things real franchises do.

Any suggestions? I think we can do a series of these. Let’s have it.
