<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>wagsnags</b></div><div>So of course all you will be getting is comments that this does not work.... no way they will trade those players.... blah blah blah.

As is customary I will provide my feedback but also give suggestions if I do not agree with what you are selling.

First off you are spot on that the best things GM Adams can do is do nothing right now as it stands with Eichel. Yes it would be great if he was able to get that Ducks first round pick and he could go Eklund/Wallstedt..... there is no gun to his head.... he has stated what he wants and he should just sit chilly..... Allow Eichel to get back on the ice and then in November/December see what the market is,..... Eichel will cost the acquiring team about $8,000,000 at that point in the season so more teams will be able to absorb his salary.... I also believe that GM Adams will be willing to retain 20-25% of Eichel's salary to improve the overall return.

I am not buying that teams are stating they will not move Zegras in an Eichel deal.... or Byfield.... or this guy.... we all know (Leaf Fan will never admit it) that if a GM can land a top tier talent like Eichel you will be willing to part with your top prospect...... so all of those top prospects are in play.

Therefore I do not think you should have a conservative trade for Eichel.

In relation to Risto I think that return is too strong for him. I think you take Byron out of the deal and retain 50% on Risto and a mid round pick back to Montreal and then that deal is probably good to go.

I am probably in the minority here but I think that Reinhart is worth more than what you are getting from LAK. I think the return is reasonable but I do believe Adams could squeeze a bit more.

If Adams will have to sweeten the deal for his buddy Ron Francis for Seattle to take a certain player I say that player should be Eakin not Miller. Miller is very serviceable and will be worth something in a trade at the deadline. Eakin takes up a spot for one of the young pups. Miller can be a mentor for the young Dmen.

Who do you think Adams takes at #1?

I say it will be Eklund.</div></div>

Interesting perspective and good feedback. I appreciate it. I think it is going to go up until draft day for the Sabres to truly make a decision on Power/Eklund.
