Eichel Day

Initial Creation Date: Jul 22, 2021
Published: Jul 23 at 10:16
Team: 2021-22 Minnesota Wild
Team Explanation
wIlD cAnT aFfOrD tHiS iN ___ yEaRs. We RE-ASSESS every offseason. Yes we have dead cap, but we get Eichel we get a 2 star forwards, something we've never had. And I would say that this pretty much guarantees Kaprizov signing for at least 5 years.

- This is probably the best offer BUF can get. Fiala is about the $$$ and BUF can pay him. You have a legit first line winger so I don't know why you wouldn't want him. How long do you want this re-build to be?
- We should keep Rossi, we could have 3 absolute shut down centres, imagine that? that's what wins you Stanley cups.
- We can see if Rossi is ready to compete at NHL level while Eichel probably misses first 10 games on LTIR.
- Khovanov is a B/B+ C prospect.

- Trade Dumba and Greenway for forward ELCs and contracts under 2M next year

IN GMBG WE TRUST - I think we get Eichel today, i'll be so disappointed if we don't.

No need for Khovy. Fiala, Boldy and 2 1sts is plenty of value. Taking on Rask doesn’t need additional compensation when that much value is being traded.

I think if this is enough for the Sabres they would have made this move by now. Or at least not what they are looking for

Man that hurts our scoring depth. I think if you can get away with keeping both Rossi and Boldy it’s worth it, but otherwise I’d walk away from him. I just think it’s too much of a risk. Sure, it could turn out to be a home run, but if not it sets our franchise back IMO

It's possible, I think they are waiting on Anaheim or LA to up their offer as well

You're not getting Eichel without giving up one of them

he may not be, I just included him because with this proposal he just won't fit in here.

You get to keep Rossi here, that's gonna cost something. In an Eichel trade, buffalo HAS to receive one of them or I see zero way a deal can be feasible

I’d do the same if I were Buffalo, I’m just saying that if I were in Billy’s shoes I would walk away from him then

Fiala boldy and 2 1sts would only be worth it if they retained 50% of his contract. Otherwise it should drop boldy and add rask and beckman or something.

As it is - that is way too much.
