STOP TRADING FOR KANE.

1. We are finally building right, stop ruining that.
2. Kane is not what he once was and does not hold all that value

Im the biggest a$$hole on here, but this site exists literally for people to do what ever they want and get ripped on for it. Your not influencing Kevyn Adams, hes not on here looking for ideas.

You so sure of that? Pretty sure he put up the 3rd best season of his career this season, which is better then 95% of NHL players

2 firsts and a 40 pt 20 year old center both 2nds are top 41 and both the Sabres captains for 1 year of Kane(who Chicago is probably not going to get any assets for because of nostalgia) and Debrincat

Debrincat is worth more than what you received for Eichel. The cap dumps don't help this trades value and adding in Kane for nostalgic reasons is BUF approach not anything to do with CHI. We'd like to keep him as a 1 club player IMO.

Personally id like to see them both stay but if we were to trade Cat and Kane I believe there are more beneficial and lucrative deals.

Vgk 1st = vgk 1st, Buf 2nd >>> vgk 3rd, Cozens > Krebs, Tuch >> Okposo, they're getting more for Cat than Eichel and a 1st 2nd and great role player and assistant captain(former allstar) is about the value they get for Kane

look I don't agree with your values but I respect what you've got to say about BUF. I just don't believe this move is beneficial for either team.

I watched kane multiple times this past year. Sure he still has the quick hands and IQ in the Ozone...but anything in hockey that isnt offense, he looked so bad with and isnt worth it. His defensive analytics are horrendous and it show when hes playing in his own zone

Apparently you haven't watched his entire career because this year he was arguably better, at least noticeable defensively, then in years past. The entire team's defense analytics are horrible so that's a bad measuring stick, the eye test is more telling in this case.
