‘The Sabres strategy certainly was interesting. Knowing that CHL players often make the NHL at a much earlier stage than their peers, Murray used his first four picks on CHL players and then drafted two high school players and two Europeans with four of their final five picks. Rights to non-CHL players can be held for up to four years, which means the Sabres are able to be patient and allow raw prospects plenty of time to develop before committing to them professionally.’
