First Round Targets: RASMUS DAHLIN

What kind of introduction does one give to Rasmus Dahlin? He is without question going to be the number one pick in this draft. He’ll start the season as a Buffalo Sabre. He will not be a Detroit Red Wing. Probably ever.

THE STATS

From EliteProspects.com

Is there even any point at looking at these? If you’re not a Sabres fan, it’s only going to make you sad. He is the best player in this draft. He will go number one.

THE EYE TEST

Seriously? You’re still reading this? Sigh.

The eye test shows that Dahlin is the best player available in this draft. He is an excellent skater with an excellent shot and excellent vision. To sum it up, he’s excellent.

Top it all off, he’s a right-handed defenseman. Doesn’t get any better than that.

Man… I’m mad at Buffalo.

IS HE A MOTOR CITY MATCH

YES!!! OF COURSE HE IS!!! DETROIT NEEDS A NEW SWEDISH DEFENSE GOD AND THAT IS WHAT DAHLIN WILL BE AND HE’S GOING TO BE IN OUR DIVISION PLAYING FOR A DIFFERENT TEAM AND I’M JUST SO ANG-

Alright. Deep breath. Time for a coffee. I’m sure Evan Bouchard will be just fine.
