I don't think motorcity was saying that hockey was the most popular sport in Buffalo, just that they are die hard, good hockey fans. Because after all, if we went by that criteria (most popular team/sport to root for in a particular town), Detroit wouldn't be considered a hockey town either.
Please, Buffalo is far and away a football town that casually watches the Sabres... and in fact root against them when they're playing the yotes at the end of the season. Shameful.
I don't live in Buffalo but have spent a lot of time there over the past 20 years and I agree with motorcity, Buffalo is a very solid hockey town.
