I may be in the minority here. But I view last year as Foligno getting a handful of games to see what he brings to the Sabres. THIS year (to me) was his rookie (full) year with the Sabres. So my opinion or comments are based on that mindset.

Foligno had a poor year IMO, but nothing to get bent out of shape about. He's a rookie, i believe he'll improve next season, and the season after that. If he plays a solid north south game which includes banging and a strong forcheck it will benefit his career. Not to mention working on his defense. I can see him develop into a Steve Ott type without the mouth.
