This is an all-in move for LV.... there are still so many conditionals (and I'm not talking about the draft picks)
If Eichel is healthy by the start of the playoffs (and not one ̶m̶o̶n̶t̶h̶ day sooner) and if his neck issues don't come back and if the Knights can make the playoffs without him or Tuch (they are currently outside of a playoff spot but it's still early), then it has a chance to work out spectacularly for Las Vegas.
If they have to do crazy roster moves because Eichel comes back too soon, if he comes in rusty and isn't a top center immediately, if he doesn't heal in time for the playoffs, if they miss the playoffs entirely, this will blow up in their face.
Summary: If LV wins the Cup this year, they win the trade. If not, they traded a 20 year old fringe NHLer, a 26 year old top 6 winger, and a mid first for a ticket to cap hell. What does this do to them next year? Is Reilly Smith gone? Do they have to pay someone to take Dadonov or Martinez?
