    Dead last with house fly as the coach. I would of liked Botts to choose a better coach then. you really think our roster is filled with spots people earned like it was preached in camp? We Don't let our kids play when they clearly earned a chance. And FYI botts can tell housley to sit sobotka and play cj or hes fired. So of course blame lies on him.

    He's on a 2-yr deal and is RFA at the end of it, he isn't going anywhere in North America anytime soon.

    I'm quite positive that the great players(Gretz, Mario, Sidney, etc.) all have their best seasons 22-24 and the majority of players have their best seasons 26-28(however these average ages get younger every year). Olofsson has tons of great hockey left.

    I'm also quite positive I read somewhere that if we call him up before the TDL he won't be eligible for AHL playoffs. That is most likely the reason for keeping him down. See if anyone can be traded at the DL, call up AHLers to fill in the roster spot. Send them back down for AHL playoffs if the Sabres miss.

    Ah, so I see. Reshape the roster by getting rid of Jack and keep ROR. Great plan.

    Olofsson will be in a Sabres uniform eventually.

    There’s been a number of breakdowns.

    Most I have read actually indicate that prime goal scoring years are a touch younger, 20-24.

    Super elite players obviously drag those ranges wider, but for your average nhler, scoring is a young man’s game.

    The reasons why are less developed, but personally, I think the physical stuff is one element, but mentally the drive to go to the net, take the beatings and generally care enough after making several million dollars.

    The Ovies and Marleau’s of the league are the big exception.

    Unless you have multiple personalities or post from separate accounts, it wasn’t directed at you.

    There's this thing called Google, go use it to find the articles because I don't have the time or energy to type out a 10,000 word reply. Also you might not want to be snarky to a guy who decided to answer your question.

    The other poster pretty much showed what I said was 100% true, and if anything I understated what a horrible idea it is to slow cook guys into their mid 20's.

    This entire prime years of production argument for a call up is somewhat silly. Each player has an individual arc and I doubt there are many 7th round late bloomers in these average peak performance stats.

    Olofsson is already an outlier as a 7th rounder with a real chance at the NHL.

    Looking at Cullen's ranking of draft position value based on where players end up in their careers (data from the 1990-2010 drafts).

    https://www.tsn.ca/statistically-speaking-expected-value-of-nhl-draft-picks-1.317819

    Only 1.9% of players drafted where he was ended up a top 6 forwards/top 4 dmen.

    The average ranking on a system of 1- (10 or fewer NHL games) to 10 (generational player) for his draft spot of #181 averages out to 1.55. Thats between a minor leaguer with under 50 NHL games and a guy with only 10 NHL games.

    So lets be patient, watch him develop and hope he keeps beating the odds.
