Honestly? If Buffalo winds up with say Nurse or Rasmus Ristolainen at 8, I have no problems with them looking at Zadarov at 16 too. Yes, yes, they need forwards. But since d-men take longer and there are some questions about some of the Sabres prospect d-pool, and they don't have a physical guy like him in the system who can move like he does but plays as hard as he does... and I don't view this as a one-year turn-around.
Lot of guys to like. If it winds up they get a forward they like at #8, it might make Zadarov an option if he gets to Buffalo. McNabb's knee injury likely isn't going to help his already exploitable skating and they need more than just a regular bottom pairing guy to skate with, shut down, and certainly punish the forward talent throughout their new division.
