Can we all admit he's an elite goalie and sometimes elite goalies have bad games/series and move onto The Sam Reinhart Question or something
- TheSabresTaco

You need at least an 80% acceptance to request rate for autograph signing to be considered elite. Sam Reinhart is nowhere near that.

Would think Miro at 16 would have been the better selection...way too much upside there to pass on.
- IonSabres

Yeah, I am hesitant on Kasper. Could be a good 2C or a very good 3C. Think Miro would be a good risk at 16.

I don't know who your SOURCE is, but I took a survey of 1000 people and 83% of the time, he signed 100% of the time.

Elite.

"The experience in the SHL was still beneficial. (Isak) Rosen played center this season and strengthened his defensive game. He saw that his speed was a threat against bigger, stronger opponents."

Lance Lysowski, BN.

Didn't realize he played center this year

Our prospect center depth is beyond poor. At least two of those four first picks need to be primary center and RHD.

The Sabres seem to be of the mindset that every forward should play every forward position. Even the Buster and and IsaKHL.

I think they draft forwards for skill and figure out the position later

I wonder if any of these secondary defenders (Korchinski etc) are able to play both sides.

I know we want to point to Tage Thompson as validation for this mindset, but trends and history seem to indicate that he's the exception and not the rule.
