Daily Dasherboard: 2013 NHL Entry Draft Edition

It’s finally here!

Draft day!

Feel the excitement!

What’s that – you’re NOT excited?  Oh, that’s right: you’re a Buffalo Sabres fan.  You want to be excited, but you’re willing to bet the farm that General Manager Darcy Regier is going to trade his picks away for a handful of “magic” beans.  Come on – he’s not that bad; I’m sure he and the front office have a clear vision of the direction in which they want the franchise to head . . . unless it’s true that he intends to draft Zach Fucale with the 16th pick, giving Buffalo 400 goalies in their system.
