If the Sabres and Zemgus both feel he's ready to play in the AHL, why wait?

I'd prefer that they err on the side of slow cooking him and Grigs.

There are more examples of guys who've had their development hurt by being rushed as opposed to guys who've had their development hurt by being slow cooked.

The right decision. All parties were obviously in agreement here. Girgensons, his junior coach and the Sabres. It's hard to argue against that.

When's the last time Darcy or the Sabres rushed a prospect?

I've heard that argument made about Stafford. Could be some merit there.

Maybe the CHL option is back on the table for Z?

It's been a while since Jiri Novotny was brought over at 19yo to play in Rochester.

But, I think having Girgensons playing in the AHL at 18yo is rushing him.

If Kelowna trades his rights, then there would definitely be some smoke.

Really? I've never heard that. He played 2 years in North Dakota after being drafted and then in the AHL. Being called up during his first season in the AHL is really the only part I would consider being rushed, but even that's a stretch.

Unless Buffalo might be helping to mend some fences there......

Staff had two full seasons at North Dakota after he was drafted, and 34 games in Rochester--in which he scored 44 pts. He was called up after his 21st birthday. Here, they're sending an 18 year-old to Rochester.

I'm not passing on the merits, I just don't think Girgensons' situation is analgous to Drew's.

Here's Sabres University's first star pupil. This will be a test of how good they've got that ship running.

Rolston better be good at developing more than the size and speed aspect of a young player, which is what most of them need the most work on.

Thats a good way to put it.


I've got to think Rolston played a role in the Sabres assessment of him. He seems to have the right backround with NTDP and college teams to work with a kid like ZG.

I agree as well, just because this isn't the usual way things go down doesn't mean this is going to screw up his development.

I'm excited.

UVM has confirmed Zemgus Girgensons signs with Buffalo and will not attend UVM
I'm definitely slightly worried about hurting his development, but more excited to see what he can do.
