Sabres 2005 draft evaluation


‘Out of the nine picks that the Sabres had, four of them can be legitimately labeled as a bust, including first-round pick Marek Zagrapan. Only one player has a regular spot with Buffalo and in total all of the players drafted have produced just 132 games played. While there was a little redemption in the middle rounds with the selection of Marc-Andre Gragnani, Chris Butler, and Nathan Gerbe, 2005 is definitely a draft year that they would like to have back.’
