I had no idea who Kyle Criscuolo was until reading the News today (oh boy). He's not a savior and no one should expect him to be.
But — damn it — he'd better be able to play some hockey. Tonight. This is what Jason Botterill is supposed to be all about. Finding good young players, putting them in positions to grow and develop, and then bringing them up to the big club when they're ready. An eye for talent, patience, timing.
If I see evidence that Criscuolo can play, I'll be a lot more confident in the Sabres' future. If he expires in his cage, I'll be even more bummed about the next few years.
