<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>markmws</b></div><div>I read an interesting article on <em>The Hockey News</em> website about a possible Eichel trade: essentially, the market is going to dictate what the Sabres would receive. While many Sabres fans would love to receive a Byfield, a Zegres, a Lafreniere, the likelyhood of the Ducks, Kings and Rangers being willing to deal any of those three is extremely slim. The Sabres are, unfortunately, in an extremely difficult position. I do not have a horse in this race, but I honestly think that, if Eichel <em>does</em> request a trade (honestly, he hasn't yet and there is no telling if he is even interested in being traded), he may not fetch as much as everyone seems to think he will.
I am by no means saying that he is not worth it. But everyone also has not taken into account a salary cap system that has been severely affected by Covid: with a flat cap, this deal will likely also have to involve the Sabres taking on money. A deal for a bunch of high level prospects or other $10 million dollar players is extremely unlikely: there is just no way teams that have $10 million dollar players either a.) want to trade them, or b.) are being pressured by those very players to leave the team.
It's not a fun position for the Sabres or their fans to be in, and I empathize with that. It hasn't been fun there in a while and I know that's awful. Better days are ahead: just by the laws of probability, they have to be. :) I am rooting for them! :)</div></div>
Theyre just not going to move Eichel, hes definitely not going to request a trade after playing hurt and not producing 5v5, which is the sole reason the Sabres have struggled
