Playing at Right Wing, Gare improved his Point tally to 73 in 1975-76 and was nearly a Point per Game player during his Sabres run. In 1979-80, Gare had his best season in the NHL when he was a co-leader in Goals (56), with his 11 Game-Winning Goals leading the league. A Second Team All-Star that year, he was also invited to play in the All-Star Game that year and the year after, when he had his second straight 80-Point year.
As good as he was, the Sabres traded him to Detroit as part of a six-player transaction. Gare scored an even 500 Points in 503 Games for Buffalo, and in 2005, his no. 18 was retired by the team. The Sabres also inducted Gare to their Hall of Fame in 1994.
