i know, i was hoping his post was a joke but hard to tell these days.

There are some teams in the 1-8 range that also have a later pick. Rangers have 6 and 22. Anaheim has 8 and 26. LA has 2 and 25.

LA is interesting.  Maybe we win the lottery, LA comes 2nd we could trade 1 for 2, 25 and something else?

 

Although the odds of that happening are slim so probably not even worth discussing at this point lol.

1st or 2nd is where it's at this year.

After that it doesn't matter so much.

Here's to hoping we get really lucky.

I'll be watching.

Dude looks like he's 14, to be honest.  It's gonna take more than 10 lb.

In all seriousness, he would fit right into the St. Joe's Glee Club, circa 1986 when I was in it, aged 15.

We all looked like this.

This sounds like you are one of those “Bettman controls the lottery outcome” people. You can’t be one of those! I’ve grown to like your posts.

Two words! ‘No Goal!” 

No i don’t think the lottery is rigged, but....Matthews did end up in Toronto.

I’d say the same if the Rangers or Montreal get Hughes.

I watched some highlights and was shocked at how young he looks.

In my son's locker room at hockey last night, a kid looked exactly like Hughes, I almost said something to him. I think he was in the 12U group,

Just some Sabres draft history.  We’ve had 17 top 10 picks in our history, but have never drafted 3rd or 4th. This year will be the 18th top 10 pick or which 7 will have occurred in the last 7 years.  

1st overall - 3 - Perreault, Turgeon and Dahlin

2nd overall - 2 - Eichel and Reinhart

5th overall - 5 - Martin, Schoenfeld, Barrasso, Anderson, Vanek - pretty good other then Anderson (Brian Leetch was the next D taken).

6th overall - 1 - Housley

7th overall - 1- Rasmussen (note: Briere was taken 17 picks later)

8th overall - 3 - Ristolainen, Nylander & Mittelstadt

9th overall - 1 - Cyr (Andreychuk went 16th)

10th overall - 1 - Lacombe (Sabres took Creighton 11th -Dave Gagner went 12th)

I predict the Sabres partially win the lottery and draft 3rd for the first time.  Jbot will then pass on Pod, and take Cozens.

If we win the lottery I think we should trade the the 1OA pick + Okposo for:

a legit 2C

that teams 1st round pick

that teams top D propsect or good D man on entry level D

Is that reasonable or am I sweet-lou-ing this scenario?

We need Kakko. 

We need as many players on our roster that fans can butcher the spellings of their names as possible.

The more Ks the better.

And I will be shocked if we aren’t picking at 8.

Thanks for the mention, I guess my reputation proceeds me...

My take if we win the first overall pick is go to Vancouver and offer the first and Sobotka.  They could have the Hughes brothers be a replacement for the Sedan twins.

I would want Horvat, Virtanen and Vancouver's first in return. 

Sobotka is a cap dump on a team that has space in order to get the first overall pick.  Vancouver has Petterson that can slide into the first line center and have Hughes be the #2 center.

This gives the Sabres their #2 center right away and would still get a high end pick.

Virtanen gives the Sabres the pesky 3rd line RW who can play physical and score.

3 Ks isn't a great amount though...

Sobotka should seal the deal.

Meh I'd rather have him ride out his year as a 13th forward/waive, then wast potential assets.

Switching 1st overalls and getting horvat in return is more than good enough deal, some of you just want to much.
