Im just saying, there are no sign and trades like that anymore in hockey (if there ever were), and truthfully, the bruins dont want to give up those three for Eichel and a 8th overall pick, its not worth it.
But no, the trade itself isnt bad valuewise by any means for the Sabres, they just might not like it, which is its own story</div></div>
I completely agree with every single comment you made above as well.
While a signed Krug and Pasternak is close to fair, adding Krejci while taking on Okposo tilts the scales totally toward the Sabres.
IDK what Sabre fans are missing, I really think when they see an Eichel trade they automatically say no.
Regardless, I am happy at least one person saw that the value exchange greatly favored Buffalo.
Just had a thought, Buffalo gives Boston first round picks from 2020 and 2021 instead of all of the picks from 2020, then at the TDL Boston wants to get Krejci back and gives them the 2021 pick. LOL of course it would never happen, it would reek of collusion but what a delicious idea of keeping Boston under that cap.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Leafs_and_Sens_Fan</b></div><div>Now this offer is gonna start to get you somewhere. Nice job.
Buffalo probably wants to give a RHD back in that deal (Risto or Montour). Maybe take out a 2nd, throw Kase in and have Montour coming back.</div></div>
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Silkysmooth42</b></div><div>Wow bruins laugh at this offer
Yes lets give up OUR ENTIRE FUTURE for one franchise player.
Eichel is a BEAST, but he is not worth giving up on a cup winning team and killing the future of the franchize</div></div>
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Timmah007</b></div><div>Carlo instead of Mcavoy in my opinion.
But very good deal for buffalo in my opinion.</div></div>
Eric Lindros was traded for this:
Chris Simon, Mike Ricci, Kerry Huffman, Ron Hextall, Peter Forsberg, Steve Duchesne, future considerations, round 1 pick in the 1993 draft, round 1 pick in the 1994 draft
IMO Jack is at least as good as Eric, and the trade I proposed does not come close to the what the Flyers gave up for Eric.
So it is not at least the trade I proposed the team getting Eichel is stealing him:
Steve Duchesne for McAvoy, Charlie
Mike Ricci for DeBrusk, Jake
Peter Forsberg for Studnicka, Jack
round 1 pick in the 1993 draft, for 2021 1st round pick (BOS)
round 1 pick in the 1994 draft for 2022 1st round pick (BOS)
Chris Simon for 2020 2nd round pick (BOS)
Kerry Huffman for 2021 2nd round pick (BOS)
There may be some inequities but on the balance it is a fair comparison.
Anything less than this will not get you Eichel.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Sebybbq</b></div><div>If Buffalo trade Eichel they will want top end prospectS, a regular player that can have a impact right, high first round picks.
Eichel is younger then all those players you throw at Buffalo and their no prospect involved. Buffalo would at least ask for Kaprizov and Boldy plus the first round pick and Fiala or Brodin or Dumba</div></div>

Thanks for your comment, the best one on this post.
First of all they are only months older than Jack
Jack Eichel C RH Born Oct 28 1996 68 36 42 78 Cap Hit of $10,000,000 to 2025-26 (UFA)
Donato, Ryan C LH born Apr 9 1996 62 14 9 23 Cap Hit of $1,900,000 to 2020-21 (RFA)
Fiala, Kevin Born LW LH Jul 22 1996 64 23 31 54 Cap Hit of $3,000,000 to 2020-21 (RFA)
Kunin, Luke C RH Born Dec 4 1997 63 15 16 31 Cap Hit of $925,000 to 2019-20 (RFA)
Second, Buffalo is getting 3 picks all 47 or better in the same year (this is important so the team does not have to draw out the time to see the returns on the trade).
Third, Buffalo does not need another RHD so Let's remove Dumba.
Fourth Buffalo sheds about $4,000,000 of cap and collectively picks up 16 goals and 30 pts as well as the picks.
Finally, I think Buffalo would hate to trade Jack, but Buffalo also needs more depth, and maybe this would give it to them.
