The Buffalo Sabres have not won a game in the 2015 calendar year, but all eyes are on the future, as the rebuild continues. A string of injuries and poor performances by the Sabres’ veterans opened up opportunities for some of the organization’s top AHL players to showcase their skill in the big leagues, and although the results have been mixed, generally speaking the franchise is in good shape for the future.
Once the Buffalo Sabres are done collecting their puzzle pieces, it will be a matter of figuring out how they will all fit together. The Sabres have the cornerstones in place with Sam Reinhart at center and Rasmus Ristolainen on defense, but the short-term focus is to make sure that every prospect in the organization takes a step forward.
Over the past three NHL Drafts, the Buffalo Sabres have made 12 picks in the first two rounds, more than any other team over that period of time. It is a big reason why the Sabres are regarded to have the deepest pool of prospects in the league, but the organization has supplemented their high picks by unearthing potential gems in the later rounds, such as Cal Petersen or Sean Malone.
