In Cozens I see a bigger version of Zemgus Girgensons... Change my mind.

His shot is infinitely better. As is his stick handling, passing, and IQ. 

He's a very north south guy but he has a cannon.

Zemgus part deux

Impossible, he's not Latvian and the Yukon hasn't written a hit song for him to get into the all star game

We need some more north south players to balance out the east west guys like Skinner

 

Always get afraid of hearing ‘size’ being the first attribute. Sabres sure could use more players like him though.

 

 

how far out is he?

We are also way more in need at RW than left so if he does transition to wing, he'll fit well. 

But we should have a centre spine of:

Eichel

Cozens

Mittelstadt

...noice.

Sounds like ROR 2.0

That was my thought.  They drafted ROR.

Hopefully that contrast to Mittelstadt will work out well. There’s no question here, we absolutely need this pick to hit.

My Dylan Cozens Opinion.

Strengths: He is big. He is a great skater. He plays a strong 2-way game. He has a great motor. He has a great character. He has a very good shot.

Questions: Is he going to be a C or W in the NHL? Is his playmaking going to come along?

Personally, I had Zegras ranked higher, but I don’t have an issue with the pick. He is a very different player from Mittelstadt and they could form a diverse 2/3C combo in the near future. I think he is a good fit for the Sabres.

I wanted Zegras but i'm relieved its not Caufield so i'm not too upset with the pick. Fulfills a need & makes us stronger up the middle.

Excited to see what he can do & watch his development

Cozens it is

If he ends up being a top line centre down the road I’m so glad this is the intro post.

"Well we definitely loved the size and the overall ability that he brings.  He's got speed and playmaking ability, plus dangerous in front of the net.  His character is rated tops from our scouts."

Cozens with Reinhart equals awesome. 

He's probably 1 year out, maybe 2.

I would bet two. He's skinny as hell.

@rakish what are your thoughts?

That's partially because he's 6'3".

Also his hands are way better than Zemgus stone hands Girgensons.

I'm just imagining Tage. Rasmus did okay but he's special.
