Sauer is highly, highly underrated here. He would have been a first rounder last year if not for the injury. Incredibly sound at both ends of the rink, and the only thing that might keep him out of the NHL is an injury. So, question is...does that make him any less of a prospect? I don't think so.
I voted for Sauer also. Slats said he was trading down in draft and would have selected Sauer with his 1st pick. Than the trade for Staal happened and Sauer was sitting there for Slats to grab w/2nd pick. I think Sauer will be a wonderful addition to NYR in few short years.
