In many ways I viewed Jochen as this Sabres era equivalent of Craig Ramsay. A very smart, well-rounded player, whose versatility, skill, value, and "fit" with a team aren't appreciated fully until he isn't in the lineup. Quiet, consistent, and usually without flash.
Hecht always "looked German", and never complained about the woes of the team when BUF was in a rut.
Truly, BUF won't sniff a deep playoff run again until they get a couple players of prime Hecht vintage in the lineup. Hoping Girgensons and Larsson can be them, or Darcy pull another Jedi mind-trick and fleece a ~22yo from another org.
Best wishes to Jochen!!!
