IMO, there is no way any team finish's behind Buffalo, they look that lost and young right now, and once Vanek is moved, I see Buffalo with the 1st overall selection in 2015 as well, hello Connor McDavid

Buffalo could, but these teams could as well: Calgary, Colorado, Columbus, Florida, New Jersey and Phoenix in my opinion.

Ekblad and McDavid would be nicer
Buffalo is the worst team in the NHL right now, and if they were to draft #1 overall this year, if I were GM, i'd take Ekblad and here's why. Ristolainen, Zadorov, Pysyk, Jake McCabe, McNabb....all give the Sabres some great future depth for their NHL roster, but I don't think any of these guys would produce NHL points like Ekblad will, and if the Sabres played their cards right, they could have a top d-man in Ekblad and suck enough to get an apparent generational talent in Connor McDavid 1st overall the next year in 2015.
