Honorable Mentions

Jeff Skinner, W (109th)

Jeff Skinner just keeps proving to everyone he was worth every penny of that contract he signed a few years back. The downer with Skinner is that he’s 31, so can he keep up his high level of play, or could age start to kick in this year?

Dylan Cozens, C (128th)

Dylan Cozens was one of two breakout players for the Buffalo Sabres in 2022-23, with Casey Mittelstadt being the other. However, Cozens has the higher ceiling and he should crack the top 100 next season. Picking nits here, the only real downside is the absence of Jack Quinn, and how quickly Cozens will build chemistry with a new linemate for a portion of the season.

Owen Power, D (136th)

As mentioned, Owen Power could take some productivity from a points perspective away from Dahlin. He looked good with 35 points last season as a rookie looking to withstand the demands of an 82 game season, so the second-year blueliner should see growth in Year 2.
