We need trophies like this one.

Patrick Kane, as you all know, has just won his second Cup in Chicago. He scored the Cup winning goal last time. This time around the Big Dance, he was an incredible clutch goal scorer, lead his team in points, and nabbed the Conn Smythe trophy as the playoff MVP.

There were plenty of rumblings that the Sabres tried to move up in the 2007 draft to select Kane first overall. Unwilling (or unable) to put together a package to make it happen, they played the safer route, and selected TJ Brennan 1st overall – in the second round (the Sabres did not have a first round pick that year).

Since then, the Sabres have piled up plenty of good prospects after middling around 8th place in the Eastern Conference for years, leaving the stands at the FNC weary, and the Cup cupboard bare.
