<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>scottkoz20</b></div><div>This would not work out because
1) Fleury has a Modifed NTC clause in his contract and I doubt he'd want to be in Buffalo at this point in his career.
2) Vegas has so much top heavy contracts (Stone, Pietrangelo, Patches, Wild Bill, Theodore, Reilly Smith, Lehner, Fleury and Marchessault are all over $5 Mil per) - I agree they would need to move at least 1, if not 2 contracts out to make it work.
3) Krebs and Hague are the kind of contracts they need at this point, especially with playing the daily cap dance, they can be "reassigned" to the minors regularly.
I think if I deal were to be make here - Tuch AND Theodore would need to be included (neither have a NTC/NMC) as a start - and I can't see Vegas letting Theodore go.
Just my thoughts</div></div>
I doubt Fleury would too, but who knows. He went to an unknown Vegas team so maybe he feels like he could bring Buffalo up? In any trade for Eichel it will likely have to be a 3 team deal to move other pieces.
In terms of Krebs and Hague, if Vegas were to want Eichel, they'd have to give those guys up. They still have Glass as well and Smith only has two years.
I think a trade would work, they just need a 3rd team involved.
