Move aside, Jack Eichel, there’s a new young superstar in town.
Realistically, no Buffalo Sabres fan is asking Eichel to go anywhere, but that shouldn’t null how much Rasmus Dahlin-Mania has taken over Buffalo.
The promising Swedish rookie became a Sabre by way of a highly-anticipated draft lottery win for Buffalo. The unanimous #1 pick Dahlin helps to bolster a defensive unit that could certainly use it after an abysmal year last season.
If you weren’t quite sure how excited Buffalo is about their promising star, just check out how Sabres fan Melody Martin went to the trouble of creating a full cover of Dolly Parton’s “Jolene” with the main subject being, you guessed it, Dahlin.
Yup, it’s getting pretty weird in Buffalo!
