I don't want him near the big club before he's done something to actually deserve it. For starters it sends a horrible message to the kids that have earned a call up.
Right or wrong he was the eighth overall pick.
Botterill is on record saying prospects will get a look with the Sabres this season, Nylander would be one of the final ones.
In terms of sending a bad message to the kids that have earned a call up, the Sabres are a tire fire and it’s Botterill’s Responsibility to do what’s best the organization and put Nylander in the best position to succeed. Even if he doesn’t deserve it.
Right or wrong message, the kids have to understand what the ultimate goal is
If he doesn’t take advantage of that opportunity, it’s on him.
