This is why I'm saying that Buffalo has a problem with their amateur scouting. With as big as scouting staff as they are supposed to have they sure don't hit on many picks. The last few years almost any one of us could have picked their first round pick. This is unacceptable and the reason why this team is in bad shape.
And as others have mentioned before, Botterill had a major shakeup of the scouting staff this past off season. The video scouting era was a major failure & Murray added to the scouting department.
Hopefully, the new guys get it right, but this latest incarnation has literally not been responsible for a single draft. It is very difficult to say they're awful when we don't have an ability as outsiders to judge THIS GROUP's body of work.
Video scouting: one more way the pre-Pegula ownership group cut corners & we are still paying/suffering for that mistake.
