Actually, do any of you guys think trading down to the 20s would be a good move? If someone wanted #13 enough, maybe we could pick up a late 1st, and an early 2nd, if we packaged our 1st with a 4th or something?
I'm thinking Andrew Cogliano would fit our offensive need, and we could still grab one of the better D-men in the draft with the 2nd?
13 may be a little high but Regier/Luce have a way of surprising us. This is a deep draft and I would love to see Buffalo move down and grab a bunch of players to really solidify our farm system. Unless somebody really drops I think it would make sense to add picks rather than reach for a Dman or another player at 13. I truly feel that 13 will treat us about as poorly as it did last year when all of the guys we wanted were selected just before us. No offense to Drew.
Am I the only one that thinks the Sabres need Carey Price?
i actually think if price is on the board, jump on him
by the time price is ready in two or three years there will probably only be one left of the current trio
and with very little else in the pipeline, if price is around at 13 and the best player on the board, take him and run
I agree with 'billsandsabres' that if Price is available, then we should grab him. It wouldn't hurt to have another quality goaltender in our system, especially when one or two of our 3 goalies leaves. I expect Crosby, Pouliot, Brule, Kopitar, Johnson, Ryan, Staal, Bourdon, O'Marra, and Skille to be gone by the time we draft. With those players gone, the players I desire the most go as follows:
1. Alex Bourret
2. Luc Bourdon
3. Martin Hanzal
4. Brian Lee
5. Marek Zagrapan
