<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>sabres89</b></div><div>I dont care so much about the retention if its like a million, but we would have to be able to flip girard for an A forward prospect- and i have pretty serious doubts that you can. Top 4 left d, even on a great contract, i dont think thats a piece that you can flip for the piece that makes this trade work. And of course, the sabres may have drawn a line in the sand with the retention, which, ya know, is fine, eichel is a 25 year old franchise center, its not like skinner, where you would have to retain just to get him down to a cap hit where he might hold some value. Plus the pegulas are sick of paying people to not work for them, cant imagine after how the last 6 months have gone that they wanna retain for 5 years on him.</div></div>
I have seen similar comments from Sabres fans a number of times now. #1, Girard has been just as good or better on the right over his career. #2, his contract is a steal. Any team should be thrilled to have him at that price. #3, you can trade LHD prospects.
I don't understand having even the slightest reluctance on Girard or wanting to flip him considering the above.
