    After drafting Cozens great way to end the first round restocking our defensive cupboards . Now looking really promising long term with Laaksonen , Samuelsson and now Johnson and I like Botterill’s thinking being able to control his development for 4 years opposed to two.

    This is one strategy I agree with

    Elite skater. High IQ. Offensive hasn't shown itself yet.

    "Restocking"

    Our 5th best D prospect is better than our 3rd best forward prospect

    This feels a lot like the Samuelson pick last year. Safe smart defensive d. Not a bad pick although he left a lot of skilled forwards on the board again.

    Looks like the Sabres took the BPA on their board. I HATE WHEN THEY DO THAT! :laugh:

    When I said something out loud when the Sabres made the pick, the play-by-play announcer for the NTDP was sitting at the bar next to me and said this kid is a great player and you should be very happy. I mentioned we drafted Samuelsson last year and he said this kid is way better than Samuelsson. And he called his games for two years. Made me feel WAY better about the pick.

    Sounds like Pysyk, but with a potentially higher ceiling. Maybe a mix of Guhle and Pysyk's best forms.
