That’s seems like a great deal for CLB. Problem is it leaves them with literally nothing. They would just be Buffalo 2.0

CBJ is going to have to add another quality pick and prospect IMO

If Vegas loses tonight, I think we’ll see it the second it’s done. Eichel to Vegas for an astoundly underwhelming package.

"as of today the #CBJ are out on the #LetsGoBuffalo Jack Eichel sweepstakes"

So, that's LA and CBJ that have backed out...

It's a shame, because I really hope for all of our sakes that Eichel gets moved sooner rather than later, but I honestly think there's a much better chance of it happening at next years draft (When healthy?) before his NMC kicks in, than this years. If they rush it, and just take the best available offer solely to move him, I can't imagine it'll turn out well...

That deal was too much in CBS favour, the only way it works is if CBS take Okposo too.

The tweet says that they are "out", so what is the purpose of this?

Nah it's just worded badly.

It means they are out on the hunt, like going for Eichel.

Poor choice of words.

I think you can go ahead and unfollow that Twitter account. You aren’t going to get good info from it.

More news: (Sorry if I didn't quote someone, I tried to get them all"
“The Blue Jackets would probably want to include winger Patrik Laine in the deal, but it’s unclear if Buffalo has an interest in Laine, a big-ticket restricted free agent this summer.”

From the article:

There’s a lot to unpack here, but let’s get this part out of the way first: after talking with numerous sources in recent days, it doesn’t appear that the Blue Jackets — at least as of today — are in hot pursuit of Eichel, one of the premier centers in the league.

Also the offer was just what Aaron thought of as a hypothetical, not what was offered.

What this does tell us.... is that demand for Eichel is going DOWN. At this point it's just Minny, Chicago, and NYR to be remotely in on Eichel. And apparently all of those GM's are laughing at the ask from Adams.

Yes, Columbus isn’t trading for Eichel, still interested in Reinhart from what I can gather, but they are out of the Eichel sweepstakes. Which thank goodness, because Columbus needs to keep some of their picks to restock the prospect pool.

I agree, this trade leaves the Jackets with nothing.

But I havent heard anything that would make me believe they still arent interested.
