Buffalo Sabres Select Zack Kassian in First Round of NHL Draft

For weeks I have been on the Zack Kassian bandwagon.  About a week ago I picked him for the Sabres in the SB Nation Mock Draft and tonight the Sabres made that pick become a reality.  Kassian is a big kid that is listed at 6'3" and 210 pounds and after standing next to him he is every bit that frame.  Kassian may or may not become a good NHL player but at the very least he signals a change in philosophy within the organization.

I'll have another post up on Kassian tonight but chew on this pick for now. I'm telling you now that he is the right pick.
