Junkyard Dog Posted January 12, 2015 Share Posted January 12, 2015 They already are neck deep in young talent. Here are just a few in the NHL. Grigensons 14th overall 2012 Grigorenko 12th overall 2012 Pysyk 23rd overall 2010 Zadorov 16th 2013 Ristolainen 8th 2013 Myers and Ennis are still a bit young but not as young/inexperienced as the people above that are playing in the NHL. You could throw in Foligno as well. They have a bunch of talent playing in junior and in the minors as well. Reinhart 2nd overall 2014 Lemieux 31st overall 2014 Bailey 52nd overall 2013 McCabe 44th 2012 Armia 16th overall 2011 That barely scratches the surface in terms of the amount of young talent they have acquired in the last 4 seasons. These are just the cream of the crop though I probably missed a few prospects that are playing well... Don't blame me! where is SabreFan1 when you need him A thing I am to point out is that Buffalo is going to be set, especially down the middle if they're able to draft McDavid/Eichel. Mcdavid/Reinhart punch down the middle *drool*. Only areas I see them REALLY needing improvements prospect wise are at G. Makarov is their best goalie prospect but it wouldn't hurt to have a better one! My questions are. Assuming Buffalo picks McDavid/Eichel how far off do you think they will be from making the playoffs? How much of an impact will they make in the future? What pieces will they need to complement their young talent in order for those things to happen? Why am I talking about the Sabres? Well... hey! At least I am not talking about the Oilers.
