LOS ANGELES -- They came together on the stage late Friday night in Microsoft Theater, a place where the ESPYs have been for several years. And the American Music Awards and Primetime Emmys. And many finales of American Idol. They were hockey idols themselves for several generations in Buffalo, three members of the Rafters Club for retired numbers. Joined as part of NHL…

He looked as if he'd gone eight rounds with a hedge trimmer. The Sabres' young defenseman wore his wounds proudly, like ribbons from a victory well-won.
