<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>
If you can’t move a 23yr old top pairing dman on a team friendly contract for the next 5 yrs for more than a good forward prospect your GM sucks. It amazes me how people are willing to diminish the value of really good players. Girard is significantly better and cheaper than Seth Jones locked up long term and you question his value?
