Cup contenders maybe

Team: 2021-22 New York Rangers
Team Explanation
Yes it propably wouldn’t be possible to sign Zibanejad but after all Eichel is an upgrade on him so I wouldn’t be too upset about it. Extending Strome would be a possibilty and then maybe move Lafreniere up to play with Eichel. Having a top6 like:
Lafreniere - Eichel - Buchnevich
Panarin - Strome - Kravtsov
Wouldn’t be too bad.

As a Sabre fan I consider this a reasonable offer maybe there would be better offers or maybe the Sabres don't trade Eichel at least for now but this is not an insulting lowball offer.

A healthy Eichel could get Laf in return
An injured Eichel cannot

Anymore? What 10 million salaries have been traded?

What 24 year old 1Cs under contract for 5 years have been traded?

The shine is off Kakko

This team is not making the playoffs. If we managed to squeak our way in we’d be Stanley Cup Pretenders. We’d get smoked, assuming we even made it.

I find that a lot of people who don't watch the ranger games don't really see what kakko does and just looks at his point totals. His 200 foot game was stellar all year. He was in the top 3 in the league as far as takeaways by a forward for most of the year (not sure where he finished). Once the kid rounds out his offensive game he is going to be a really solid player in all 3 zones. He might never be a 70-80 point player but i see him in the 50-60 pt area for the better part of his career. I really like what I see from him so far.

Sabre-fan here. I honestly think that is a pretty solid offer and it leaves the Sabres with another huge asset: lots of cap space.

I really think you are undervaluing him, if you think he isn't gonna be good because of a injury why would you trade for him anyways, arguably a top 3 center in the league, if the Rangers wanna go for it, give them Laf instead of Kakko. Top line centers that are eichel's caliber don't grow on trees.

That is never going to happen. I doubt the Rangers would include any of those two in a deal for Eichel.

He's not a top 3 center

McDavid, MacKinnon, Matthews are all better

I think he's going to be fine after his injury but you never know. The Sabres are trading Eichel when he's injured. They're not going to return full value

I don't need him to be an offensive juggernaut or a goon but if he's going to be mostly two-way player I'd like his hits up from 14 to around 70 - look I'm not asking for 248 like Brady Tkachuk but it can't be 14
