I think we’re at a point where Sabres can’t win an Eichel trade and if he doesn’t get traded, probably gets terminated for something


The only way they can technically win is to trade him for another superstar. Like realistically if Marner and a 1st was offered for him then neither side wins or loses so to speak. Now will that happen maybe but realistically no

In general Adams should have moved him at the start of the offseason before the surgery talks came. Granted some teams hold their prospects way to high over him but still.

My guess is he will be moved in September and the rangers will give Buffalo Schneider in the end

At this point I’d offer Sabres Kk + 1st and tell them what’s better to have, Kk and a 1st or an Eichel that wants out might not play and plummeting value, teams will penny pinch the Sabres

Apparently, the Rangers latest offer was Kravtsov, Jones, Georgiev and a 1st

Kravtsov = Kotkaniemi
Jones = Harris
Georgiev = Lehkonen
NYR 1st = MTL 1st


Ngl I'd rather take Jones and Georgiev if I'm BUF. Jones has NHL experience and is better of the two and they have virtually no goalies. But that NYR offer is lowballing as f*ck anyway.

Honestly if Jones was swapped with Schneider that deal would be on the low side of an ideal Eichel trade. To bad New York thinks to highly of the kid and dont realize he wont even get a spot on the team considering they got Lundqvist, Fox, and Trouba

If anyone thinks Jones was the better move, i don’t know what to say to you, Dougie’s better, cheaper and has less term

It would be Erik Karlsson/Max Pacioretty 2.0, but I think the surgery complicates that quite a bit. Plus Eichel is different from those 2 situations in that negotiating an extension isn’t a factor.

Are they actually legally able to prevent him from getting surgery? Because I don’t see why he can’t just get it now, and whatever team he’s on in the fall has to deal with it.


This is actually the sad reality of a lot of Americans in general. Wanting surgery but not getting approved even though they’re symptomatic. In Canada of surgery is an option and regular medical therapy isn’t enough, you can find a surgeon to do the surgery. It might take you months to get it, but you’ll get it. God bless Canada

If I had to deal Eichel to NYR I'd honestly want Laffy or Kakko in return. I wouldn't be interested in their second rate prospects.

Plus it didn't take 2 firsts and Boqvist to get Dougie

So its funny was looking at the JP Barry stuff with Petterson and Hughes and you should see Canuck fans comments

Oh Petey and Hughes will sign 8 years at 5-6mill. tears of joy.

Nah

At best you get Petey at 7x3yrs
and for Hughes well he does not want 8 years so 6 years at 7-8mill be the guess. Then again Werenski puts a dent in that logic so he may make 9 lul

The funny part was the cap space citing as yeah Canucks got 15mill in space but thats gonna be gone fast

Would have to be Petey because we need a centre, don’t think we have the cap room for an offer sheet now though (unless we ship out Monahan but shipping out Monahan before we have a guaranteed replacement for him is not a great idea).
