So you’re telling me the guy that has won 2 games in the first round in his career wants to go to Buffalo?

I guess it makes sense, put up a bunch of points beside Eichel, then get traded at the deadline to a contender and cash out in free agency. This is probably the course of action that would make him the most money out of anywhere he could’ve signed.

I fully understand why he’d do it for the stats and stuff, but how can you say all you want to do is win and sign with the team with the longest playoff drought? Shocking stuff to me.

Great signing, If BUF doesn’t seem to be in a playoff spot they flip him, shows Eichel they want to win now

This is a head scratcher. He picks Buffalo out of all teams?

I like the move for the sabres but 1 year isn’t great - hopefully he re ups by TDL if the sabres are doing well for a extension of a couple years or I think he walks

"I want to win"-Taylor Hall

"I've signeed with the Sabres" - Also Taylor Hall

I guess winning means yet another draft lottery eh?

Money over winning okay

Colorado would have gave 9mill for 1 but guess he wanted to play with Eichel

So if they miss the playoffs again no more excuses

Are you kidding me? This is a steal for the Sabres... The fact that they were able to get him at all is a freaking miracle.
Amazing move for the Sabres. He'll either help the Sabres make a run for the playoffs (unlikely) or they'll flip him at the TDL to a contender.

imma say this isn't a good signing, because the Sabres have a logjam on LW and are super bare on RW. The logical move if they wanted a big name would be Hoffman/Dadonov/Tofolli imo

Watching Dak Prescott just get injured after taking a one year deal, I hope Hall can stay healthy given his past. He'll be only Eichel's line so racking up points shouldn't be the issue. Cash out next year. Also, good on Eichel for publicly pressuring the organization into improving the team.
