Why This Years Draft Is Key For the Buffalo Sabres

6 of 8

Leon Draisaitl

Draisaitl surprised everyone ranking second in the midseason rankings with his 56 points in 38 games this season for the Prince Albert Raiders. The Sabres need help at the centre position, taking him with a later pick in the top 5 or 6 might be an interesting gamble. Draisaitl will be the type of player hard on the forecheck and hard on the opposition in all three zones, a third line centre or a 2nd line checking winger.
