Alain Chainey, head scout:
«We're happy to select Sbisa. He was a rising player in the couple of months before the draft. He really make stides in his devellopement trough the year. His great playoff convinced us. He's a good all-around defender with speed and not affraid of physical play. We feel he will be able to keep the level of play he shown in playoff and be part of our defensive corps with Mark Mitera in a couple of years. With guys like Niedermayer and Schneider near their retirement and O'Donnell and Pronger over 30, we feel we need a strong defensive prospect group. It's why we choose a defenseman over guys like Boychuck or Bailey.»
Stéphane Leroux: «Is it true you try to trade up to get one of the top defenseman?»
Alain Chainey: «Of course, we all know Brian love to make splash...»
Benoit Brunet: «Alain, hat for your choice!»
Alain Chainey: «Eew, thanks Benoit»
Gary Bettman: «Buffalo and the BlackMarvel are now on the clock.»
Oh wow... ok.. well #13 must be glad that the new BPA is still there.
