Can we just call him Samson all the time? I know it's three more letters, but they're three awesome letters.

I was pulling for Bennet but I certainly don't hate this pick.  Draisaitl on the other hand, just glad I didn't have to react to that pick.

Honestly and sincerely, congratulations to him.  It's an enormous day for him.

Bonus: he's not going to Florida, Edmonton, or Calgary.  He's a Buffalo Sabre.

Best part was Murray skipping all the BS and just saying "The Buffalo Sabres select Sam Reinhart."

Didn't thank Philly; didn't say hello to the fans back home. Tim Murray doesn't have time for that crap.

Ha. I've always felt this was the pick, but wondered if the silence on Bennett was a ploy.

Thank you GMTM for not ###### around.

If he has 20 pts in those 30 they might give him a few more games.

Sam Reinhart

Quote

Reinhart has excellent hockey sense and vision.  He seems to know where the puck is going before it gets there and finds the openings in the defence. He has excellent stickhandling and puck protection skills, which when coupled with his good vision and passing make him an excellent playmaker.  Reinhart is one of those special types of centres who has the ability to make his linemates better.  He is very unpredictable, when a goalie is thinking shot he makes the perfect pass to a teammate to give them a wide open net, and if a goalie cheats towards the pass, he’ll put the puck in the back of the net. While his shot could be a little harder and should get there as he gains muscle, but he is deadly accurate and has a great release that fools goaltenders.  Reinhart has shown the ability to protect the puck on the cycle and is willing to play in the dirty areas of the ice in order to score points. He’s a natural leader who seems to get a “letter” wherever he goes, whether it be Kootenay or Team Canada.

No reason to put Reinhart down a peg. He has the potential to be a number one center. While I expect and hope to be drafting one of the elite centers next season, we got a number one center today.

John Vogl@BuffNewsVogl 1m

Sam Reinhart says he's been picturing himself wearing a Sabres uniform for quite some time.


John Vogl@BuffNewsVogl 1m

Listening to him talk, Sam Reinhart is certain he'll be in Buffalo next season, but says he knows it won't be given.


This kid is out of central casting.

I think he'll be in Buffalo. That should only mean one year is an extreme losing environment, and he's ready. Gives the fans something to look forward to, as well.

The Last top center the Buffalo Sabres had was #23 Chris Drury. The next top center the Buffalo Sabres had was #23 Sam Reinhart.

I wanted Bennett more only because of size and speed.  I'm concerned with Reinhart's skating speed.  One thing that I always enjoyed about the Sabres of '05 and '06 was team speed.

Sabres select Sam Reinhart <2:34>

The Buffalo Sabres select Kootenay Ice forward Sam Reinhart with the 2nd overall selection in the 2014 Entry Draft.
