Sarcasm is done by /s


Thanks. Considering no pick outside of two 2nd overall has played more than 16 nhl games and very few seem to be relevant or hyped (other than diehard sabres fans) I didn’t think I needed it.

Yeah that's what I figured. I'm especially excited for Olofsson though. His stick handling and his shot just scream NHL. I think he would get an immediate position on the team's 2PP line whenever he is called upon to join the big club


I would not be so sure that he ends up in Rochester. He is now an older prospect and has ton of pro experience. Wing is also the easiest adjustment to the smaller ice. He also is a guy that scores by going to the net. If he has a good camp and off-season I can see him making the team given our desperate need for scoring.

Things starting to come together regarding some Swedes/Sabres. FBK website earlier this week reported that they believe Asplund will join Sabres org next season. Today, Frolunda web states that Olofsson will (translated) "represent another club in another league" next year.

How awesome would it be if Olofsson turned into the Sabres' long-awaited overseas late-draft diamond find?

 

From eliteprospects.com:

 

Olofsson is a winger with natural goal-scoring instincts. Knows how to find open ice and has a good, hard shot. Skates extremely well and is a decent playmaker, too. His lack of size can be a problem in physical contests.

 

 

He turns 23 this summer.  He's 5'11", 172 lbs.

 

Maybe...

Nearly 23 and hasn’t made the NHL yet? BUST!

(Seriously, are we overdue for a long shot hit, or what?)

All those guys coming over here better stay in Rochester for a year. I'm sick of getting burned by bringing these guys up too early

It is different than a college or Canadian junior player. Olofsson and Asplund have 4 SHL seasons. The adjustment should be smoother. We will have to wait and see though. I would like both to spend some time in Rochester I think.

Mostly it's to grow a winning dynamic as a team, and then bring them up collectively with that attitude. I don't want to poison them with bad attitudes and routines by bringing them up to this loser locker room right away

Botterill said on Wednesday the plan is to have Asplund and Olofsson in Rochester next season. Also Chris Taylor mentioned they would rather keep a player too long in the AHL, then send them up too soon.

I’m sure that’s the plan, but players and plans don’t always mesh. I’m looking forward to seeing Olofsson in pre-season to see if he can force Jbot’s hand. He also has some leverage and maybe able to force an NHL only deal like Antipin.

Everybody needs Dahlin.   

 

Fact is, they aren't getting him... less than 1 in 5 chance.

Thanks for that read.

 

On a side note do these writers use an editor anymore. Not to nit pick but I read 'sex' somewhere's in there and lost my train of thought.

while Olofsson is good, there's a very real chance he plays all next year in the AHL.

That kid plays around the net. He should be to adjust pretty quickly. If he is smart, he’ll move here this summer and play in the summer leagues to get a jump start on the transition.

It would be nice to see a powerhouse team of mostly young guys down there wouldn't it? We had hope for the future when they were saying we had a stocked cupboard. Suddenly it was bare and everything went right back down the dumper. If we can't get good right away, I'd at least like to hear that we have a lot of up and comers developing down there.
