Why This Years Draft Is Key For the Buffalo Sabres

2 of 8

Sam Reinhart 

Reinhart was the biggest attention grabber from the get go this season due to his above average play making and the way he see’s the ice. His ability to read plays and set up teammates is quite special. He was thought of to be the top pick when the season began, but a rocky World Juniors saw him drop down the rankings at the midway point.

While I haven’t seen enough out of Reinhart to change my mind on the fact he likely won’t be the Sabres number one centre, he would certainly be a solid play-making second line centre for the Buffalo Sabres. If the Sabres choose to keep Ville Leino, they could put these two play-makers together and whoever the third person on that line is will be one very happy player.
