#97 Mario Ferraro
Pretty pleased where Casey and Jake went today.
In all honesty, I wanted Casey to be drafted by either the Rangers or the Sabres, and I'm happy with the Sabres (as long as its not Detroit right?). Casey and Eichel will both be key parts of the Sabres and USA Hockey in the future I hope
As for Jake, we knew there'd be a good chance he go in Round 1, and it was likely coming down to Dallas, St. Louis or Ottawa. Having traded up to get him, we feel Dallas is also a great fit for Jake. They don't have a high end goalie prospect in the system and by signing Bishop, they won't need to rush Jake up to the big team at all.
Looking forward to day 2!
