Buffalo selects:

Jean Ratelle
An absolutely brilliant pick, reck. I believe you had him in your first draft. One of the biggest steals of the draft, to be sure.

If I didn't land Sweeney, I would have picked Ratelle in a heartbeat. But I decided that I needed a No. 1 offensive LW more than a 1A offensive centre for my top two lines. I really couldn't believe that he was available when I picked. I was shocked he lasted another 10 picks.
