The 2015 NHL Draft begins tonight at 7pm EST, and if you're reading this website, you know just how exciting tonight is going to be.
The Buffalo Sabres hold the #2 draft pick, and will almost certainly walk away with Jack Eichel, a player who has been unanimously described by scouts, coaches, and general managers a future superstar, a true franchise center.
And if that's not exciting enough, Sabres GM Tim Murray also holds the #21 selection in the first round thanks to the New York Islanders, and with both a war chest big enough to make Congress jealous and a draft deep enough that you can't swim in it without a lifeguard, Murray has plenty of options to make the 21st pick one of the more exiting moments of the first round.
