The return that most people are expecting is a great prospect, good prospect, roster player (for cap reasons), and a 1st. Maybe a cap dump thrown in there to match salaries and a pick added. Is that what you consider the "huge" return?</div></div>
It largely depends on the teams. I mean realistically of those teams, who could afford to take on Eichel for long-term? Anaheim makes the most sense with Getzlaf, Backes, and Miller coming off the books. Would they move the pieces that would be desired? Minnesota has to negotiate with Kaprizov for starters. Depending on the team, I think maybe you could see an extra roster player added in with the sweetener of a mid level prospect / pick for taking them. How it affects the overall structure of the deal is to TBD by GMs obviously. Columbus and Buffalo may luck into a few phone calls from teams who need help with Seattle protections due to Jackets Picks and Buffalos alleged cap space. If Adams plays his cards right, he could make the franchise turn out all right post July Expansion, Draft, and FA.
