it kinda makes sense but to me its either or on Couturier and Hart


i mean Gostisbhere and Ristolinen are pretty far apart value wise .
Couturier makes up for any lack of perceived youth upside given Eichel's success and young age.
Giroux speaks for himself and he's on Eichel's level and then some but he's older is the catch .

i just dont see Hart going anywhere .

Giroux
Couturier
Gostisbhere
1st (likely gonna be 7OA -10 OA this year )

for

Eichel
Ristolinen
Girgensons (not sure why he's included but sure )

Eichel at the Center of a youth based team with Koenechy, Patrick,Provorov,Sanheim,Meyers ,Hart,Farabee,Obrien,RubstovFrost,Atttard,Ginning and York .
That still competitive with Veterans like Vorachek, JVR, Hayes ,Niskanen and Braun helping guide them .

Fortunately deals like this never happen in this league and this should be taken as a grain of salt.

The only part of this deal that makes any logical sense as a starting point is risto for ghost

depends on if Eichel's frustrations are about to go public again vs another set of management staff .
Owners only take that 1 time if at all .

i dont blame him either they've done everything to win with him and every trade seemingly made them worse .
Skinner's success last year kinda made everyone forget about Eichel's rocky relationship with the direction BUF trending .
seeing Oreilly leave and win the cup is likely on his mind

i think you'll see him demand a trade soon and though BUF isnt obligated Eichel could do like Radulov and leave for the KHL making more money and a chance to win actual championships .
Eichel could leave in time to play the Olympics and 1 year of hockey in Russia before coming back to the NHL at his leisure or he can stay becoming the player who take the KHL and helps them smash through to the US market . (they'd easily pay him more then he's making now as they did with Kovalchuk to be the league's face.)

he's got all the power right now and he's not known for holding his temper or tongue

that said if Eichel was available i think MTL would offer up KK in a package plus a 1st just to start the talks
we're in a position to take him on as the new face of our youth Core and the first undisputed #1 Center since Koivu.

i think a half dozen other teams try to do the same

read the description y'all. thanks for your inputs. im a flyers fan but wanted to see if anyone else thought this proposed trade was as ludicrious i thought it was.
coots is untouchable. id trade coots for ovi and a 2nd if i could get a trade and sign under 9m. he's THAT valuable to the flyers especially with the deal he's on.
