I feel like these criticisms had little merit as Rasmus has fit in on the Sabres' backend. He's by no means playing great but overall, I think he's done quite well. The physical game is there. His own-zone plays needs some cleaning up but that's to be expected with a player so young.
I wish he was in Finland for atleast another year. I think he looks okay enough to be on the team, but would develop better getting top minutes in the FEL.
Sulzer could have been used instead, we would suck just as much, and still be heading for a top pick. Burning a year off his ELC hurts too.
