Barnes, a definite fan favorite for Sabres fans in the late 90's, has officially announced his retirement from the NHL. He will now step behind the bench for the Stars as an assistant coach.
Not following the Sabres all that much in the 90's, I didnt really get to appreciate all that Barnes brought to those Sabres teams. But he always was a class act in the community and on the ice. He was one of the major fan favorites and immortalized by RJ with his STUUUUUUUUUUUUUU calls.
