Sometimes the rhetoric against the Sabres "building a winning team" can be tiresome. Do you know how many teams in the past decade have won the cup without a top 2 pick? More than that, how many have won the cup without 2 or more top 4 picks? Only the Red Wings... and they started 3 Hall of Famers. The point is: in the NHL (more than any other league) you have to draft high or you don't win. It is essential have access to superstars, have them on entry level deals or 1st contracts and do well with filling out the line-up with veteran talent.
