I love this pick, kid should have been a 1st rounder
Screw defence right
Tremendous pick. Wanted this player at this pick all year. Didn't think he'd be available.
#12 European Skater by NHL Central Scouting: http://www.nhl.com/ice/draftprospectdetail.htm?dpid=107235
65 from Redline:
Don't get it personally. He doesn't jump out as high ceiling pick, would have rather gone with whoever we are highest on at D or G versus Davidsson if this is the forward they are highest on.
Speed speed speed.
Solid pick. More centers!
Ranked 27th by Hockey Prospect
Botts is all about speed and good skaters. LOVE IT. The Sabres will be an exciting team again very soon.
Hockey Prospect.com's write up:
...is what other teams will have as they blow by the Sabres Swiss cheese D.
I think he was the highest player left in the black book going into today.
Pretty crazy how that first scouting report isn't much like the redline one.
Picking players that play fast.
Our forwards will be so fast, that the opponents will never be able to get a breakaway, they are already back in their own zone defending, 5 men.
These guys are all two or three years out. Why are you losing your minds over D? I have faith in Botts to fix it
They will out skate everyone...**** defense..
If he projects and tops out as a Carl Hagelin, I'll be very pleased. Catch us if you can boys.
Reid on NHL network said he could become a Palat type from Tampa
