    Meh. Didn't really stand out to me in what I saw of him, and to trade up to get him. Had to have been rated much higher by the org than other players, since this is the least of the organizational depth needs. Seems medium floor, low ceiling.

    At least Sabres didn't pick some guy from the Voskresensk Ice Yaks, like pick #31

    It's ok. We trade for Kulikov, so that helps a bit. Can never have too many centers!

    I like the pick

    Nevermind.. you edited your post.. -.-

    Less gritty, but a lot smarter and better hands imo.

    Like the leadership aspect a lot. Gotta think Alex Nylander is happy with this pick as well.

    I actually like Asplund more than his long time teammate Joel Eriksson Ek who was picked in the first round last year. Stylistically he's very similar to Henrik Zetterberg, but it's of course unlikely that he ever becomes that good.

    Two very intelligent hockey players drafted so far. Put them on a line together at dev camp and let's go

    Centered Nylander at the juniors, seems like a nice value spot too

    If Asplund pans out he's exactly what you want to be able to plug into a good team X years down the road on an ELC. It allows you to walk away from someone else with a higher cap hit. Gotta be able to rebuild your checking line and secondary offensive players.
