“Brayden is a big kid with great offensive abilities, and he’s continued to improve every year in Kootenay,” said Sabres General Manager Darcy Regier. “His outstanding performance in the WHL Playoffs was just another positive sign in his development, and we are thrilled to now have him under contract for the next three years.”
I get the sense Foligno's agent is asking for top dollar because of Marcus' final season in junior. Now, I'd bet Foligno is waiting to see the dollars McNabb got so that he can ask for the same or more.
No chance he makes the Sabres. I'm his biggest fan but there are too many people in the way of him making our roster next year. And quite frankly, as dominate as he's been in the WHL, I'd rather him have a year in the AHL developing than forcing him into the NHL right away.
