NHL Draft Live Blog: First Round Highlights

It was a coronation with little mystery, but Rasmus Dahlin is officially a member of the Buffalo Sabres. The Frolunda defenseman gives the franchise a lot of hope, as he can do pretty much everything at a high level, especially skate. What I like best about this fit is that Dahlin can take pressure off Rasmus Ristolainen. Maybe we see what the big Finn can really do now that he won't be overburdened as much.
