After the prospects challenge, is it safe to say at some point this season we will see Quinn, Peterka, and Murray up on the Sabres?

 

I believe the will be at some point this season. 

 

and who else would you like to see the Sabres take a look at?

All of the players mentioned in this typo’d titled thread should spend the entire season in Rochester.  I personally don’t think Murray will have the foot speed to ever be a legit NHL forward.  He’s developed about as much as a 23 year old can.  He should get some time with the Sabres to see if he can keep up.

Let's resist the urge to rush the process. That landed us here the last time we tried to take shortcuts. In Don We Trust.

Quinn was underwhelming then injured last year, now he's a center for some reason. I don't think we see him in Buffalo this season at all and maybe not next either.

 

He got 5 points in 7 games in a checking line role at the WJC. Wasn’t on for a goal against in the entire tournament.

He then got 9 points in 15 games as an underager in the AHL playing with a hernia.

The player picked right in front of him, Alexander Holtz, got 3 points in 5 WJC games and 3 in 10 AHL games. The player picked right after him, Marco Rossi, had 0 points in 4 WJC games and didn’t play pro. The 4th overall pick, Lucas Raymond had 5 points in 5 WJC games and 18 in 34 SHL games. 

Even Mr too-good-to-be-traded-for-Jack-Eichel Quinton Byfield scored at nearly an identical  pace to Quinn in the AHL - 20 points in 32 games.

What were your expectations for Quinn last year?

Ok, so you were more whelmed. I still don't see him in Buffalo this year and if they keep him at center maybe not next year either. That's not an easy transition to make.

Now knowing this season is a wash, do you bring them up for a few games then for experience?

They looked good, but I do not want to see any of them called up unless they are banging down the door so hard to get a spot with the Sabres that there is no choice.

If they have pretty good or good seasons in Rochester...keep them down there.  I don't want guys that young with the Sabres unless it is to the point they are dominating in Roch so much that they aren't improving much anymore.  Let them play a full season down there, let them become team leaders. Let them have a look at a playoff series or two down there and be a big part of it.

A game or two (or maybe a week) to give them a 'taste' of true NHL play might be a good idea (so they can see a reminder of just what they need to work on to make the NHL), but nothing more than that.

The only way I see him breaking into line up is as a speciality player. Maybe being a force in front of net on PP. But he'd have to be really good at it to take a spot away from a faster player

The player I see being called up and sticking is Peterka. Moving up in the draft to select him will prove to be one of the better hockey decisions this organization has made in a number of years. 

He's going to be a franchise player but i do not want him in buffalo .

Let him Destroy the AHL and world jrs

There is no question that he should start off in Rochester. Even his former coach who gloats over him said the best approach to take in his development would be to start off in the AHL in order to better acclimate to the North American game.
