First initial thoughts:

Fair deal. Eichel is a franchise level talent with leadership problems + a Major injury concern + a massive contract

Tuch is a top 6 winter with major injury problems + Krebs who might be a Top Level NHL player but is edging ever so closely to bust + a late 1st + late 2nd in a very deep draft.

All I can say is that if Tkachuk was on the table I woulda taken him alone over this package if I was Kevyn Adams lol, especially if there was anything else being offered as well

The Leafs cap situation isn’t that bad though.

So next year Vegas has $4.6 million in cap space with 16 players. If they move Carrier’s $1.4 million, they should be good with up to 8 players in league minimum.

More likely to be Dadonov getting traded if Smith/Janmark walking doesn’t give them enough wiggle room. Gonna be a very young and inexperienced or old and mediocre bottom six next year lol

They have enough room by losing Janmark & Smith.

I can see where you're coming from, but knowing the Tkachuk's, he's not leaving a cent on the table and as a team that wants to win cups, that's not a player you want.

Don’t think that’ll be an issue for the Sabres. They coulda given him 8x9-10 and have him locked up for a long time, and the cap will likely be over 90 by the time they’re competitive, likely around 100 by the time they need to pay Cozens/Power/whoever they draft this year if they’re smart with bridge deals and such.

Krebs will be a top line forward - I wonder if Buffalo will play him at center or wing.
