to all those that are on here that repeatedly said eichel would command multiple firsts, multiple young roster players, and multiple good prospects. LOL.

Wow.


OMG, it's happening, who knew this time it wasn't just your typical he's getting moved in ????. Good deal i would think until we have a better idea on Eichel's health

The Leafs cap situation isn’t that bad though.


7.2 and change to fill out 5 rosters spots and get two scratches will be tough. Especially if they are going to try and re-sign Campbell. It's not impossible but all of Kerfoot, Ritchie, and Holl would need to be moved. I could see one maybe two

Don't think Vegas is done trading stuff. They're so much over the cap when healthy

Stay tuned lol

Exactly why I added it there tears of joy I'm so f*cking done here too.

At least AGM might finally have something else to talk about instead of Eichel.

Remember when Weekes (and Flames/ Buffalo “insiders”) said Tkachuk, 1st, 1st, 2 prospects were offered and instead Buffalo ended up with Tuch and Krebs lol.. good times.


I’m glad Elliott’s came out last night and basically said it was BS

Eichel went for about what I thought he would. All the people who were insistent Krebs was "untouchable" gonna be quiet for a while.

Also lmao at the first being top 10 protected. Sabres may of not had any leverage on that but it's a kick in the nuts.

if that first ended up being in the top ten anyway id be shocked. Mid to late round pick at best imo

i remember seeing the demand from bruins fans for eichel being like 3 firsts all unprotected with roster players and other prospects going back too and then its this and you just laugh cuz its the same as the RoR stuff. Sabres should have moved eichel at or around the draft. they didnt and lost all leverage.

I really don’t love the trade for Buffalo - but it’s a fair return. I’m just not a fan of Krebs, and I think Tuch is a 3rd liner who can’t really perform in a top 6 role consistently

Tell eichel he can have his surgery, and take your time coming back. 10m of ltir space right there. make moves to be cap compliant in the offseason.

Currently re-drafting 2014 and it's harder than most drafts. Feels like most players are in the same Dvorak-Kapanen-Olofsson-Labanc-McCann-Sanheim tier.

I'm positive they'll do their utmost to get the guy healthy before the playoffs since by that point he's gone full year without any hockey. And with a grand total of zero playoff games he's basically a rookie in there, so it'd be ideal if he had some feel on the ice before the real games start. And that's why I assume they'll be doing some cap gymnastics before the deadline.

I don’t think he’s gonna be traded this year and possibly not next. Their asking price is soooo high it’s stupid. Everyone remembers what happens with lindros, nobody’s paying that much.

Facts

How. They aren't a favorite to win the cup and they have no cap space to improve the team. They actually have to trade decent depth for more shots in the dark. How many Thornton's are there to 1 Spezza in terms of gambles paying off?

Yeah doesn't break any news outlets that one. Nothing to see here.

The Eichel trade thread is making me think a lot about the Eichel trade talks.

Taking longer than it should.

Now pls post it, I want to post my funny memes.
