BUFFALO -- Rasmus Dahlin, the No. 1 pick in the 2018 NHL Draft, should not be expected to revive the Buffalo Sabres by himself, general manager Jason Botterill said Monday.
"He doesn't need to be the savior," Botterill said during the 18-year-old defenseman's introductory press conference in Buffalo. "It's a situation where we're excited about our young players such as [center] Jack [Eichel], [center] Sam [Reinhart], [defenseman] Rasmus Ristolainen. He can be part of this group and sort of grow together.
