If you did not already know this, we here at Fansided are doing a 2013 NHL Mock Draft. Each team site is producing a post in which they explain who their team should pick, and why, in this year’s NHL draft. Head on over to Too Many Men on the Site to check it out.
Here’s where you need to listen up, Sabres fans:
I’m a democratic kind of guy. Sure, I could just write up my personal take on who the Buffalo Sabres will draft with the eighth pick in the upcoming 2013 NHL Draft . . . but how much fun would that be for you? You fans are a pretty savvy bunch – I’m interested in hearing who YOU wish the Sabres will pick on June 30th.
Vote in this poll (which I have set up to allow two votes per person – pick your top two choices!!!) and, if you wish, leave a comment below explaining your pics. Should the top vote getter still be available in our mock draft, then I will write up the Sabre Noise pick based on the player you have all chosen. If one of the editors from another site has already picked our number one vote-getter, I will fall back to plan B.
Note: in our mock draft, Alexander Barkov, the number one rated European prospect, is still available! Crazy, I know. I have included him in the poll, but he is clearly a longshot. If you vote for him, just keep that in mind. Also, if you have a pick in mind that I did not include, please make note of that in the comments section! I have tried to pick players who were projected to go within the top 10-15 picks, but if you think there’s a sleeper out there worth considering, feel free to bring it to my attention!
This poll closes on Monday, at midnight, so have fun, and vote, now!
