<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>TMLBRIAN</b></div><div>Do they? Romanov is an A prospect. 2x 1st. Pohling is a B prospect. Drouin could be good for buffalo and can be flipped this year or next. Byron is overpayed but performed super well in the playoffs but probably has negative value.
I think they would want KK in the trade, but I didn't like Montreals roster without KK.
I think Buffalo considers this.</div></div>
The problem is the high end piece in this trade is a LHD, Romanov. Literally the only position BUF doesnt need. At best he'd be 3rd in line behind Dahlin and Power. Not that there isnt value there, however, for BUF it isn't the right value.
I don't want KK to be the centerpiece of a deal either to be honest. The center piece of an Eichel deal to me needs to be a A prospect with a superstar level ceiling. That being said, I wouldnt consider an offer from MTL unless Suzuki or Caulfield were involved. If that's a non starter, then so be it. Trading in divison bumps the value.
Not saying there couldnt be a package without CC or NS that wouldnt work. But, that would also be unlikely. Example: KK, Romanov, Another good prospect, w/e cap dump, and a 1st.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>SuprDave45</b></div><div>This is Eichel's value...<strong>IF he weren't injured and wanting off the ship</strong>. Rangers have no reason to take on all that risk and send this type of package over to Buffalo when they are in an untenable situation.
Can we honestly say Eichel is going to play for Buffalo next season? I can't see it at this point...it would be a giant $H!T show!
If they are insistent on not moving him for less, then he's going to sit out. What's that going to do for his trade value?
Why would the Rangers, or any team, give up this kind of haul for an injured player with a lot of risk who is likely to sit out until he is moved?
Remove Kravtsov, Remove Schneider, install Zach Jones, include 2022 2nd (Rangers have 2, take your pick), include Strome to balance money at least for a season..that's about it.
And then the Rangers get to enjoy some cap headaches moving forward.
If the Rangers were interested in offering more, the deal would have been done already.</div></div>
That is 100% not the value of a healthy Eichel. A healthy Eichel to NYR does not get done without 1 of Laf, Kakko, Miller, ++++.
However, I am not against Chytil, Strome, Schnieder, and a 1st. BUF has 0 use for another LHD prospect unless they plan on trading them.
