That article showed up on my feed like an hour ago. I thought he meant one of those pieces. Doesnt matter, montour makes sense, he is 100% a guy that teams should try to steal from us. He would have made sense in housleys system, now he plays a system that doesnt fit his game, and he plays his off hand because we only have 2 lhd. In the right puck carrying system, he will look good, and we will look silly, again. Also, the media has absolutely nothin on some of the posters on here. I saw one from a rangers writer that suggested they go get eichel, and send us a package with ryan strome as the centerpiece.

Hes very good, probably on a reasonable bridge too. We arent gonna find common ground here. A ton to like with this player, and i think most of our bottom 9 was hot garbage, lest you think im just being a homer. He has good hands, a great shot, and has proven he can score at every level. Plus, theres something with how he carries himself, if he hits a post or misses a shot, he looks like he expected it to go in, not just hoped. Whatever it was that he was lacking in his draft year, i dont remember if it was size or skating, he seems to have outgrown.

This i agree with. Its the littany of posts where 5 painless/marginally worthless pieces get moved for eichel that has gotten pretty old, followed by the declaration that you cant win this type of trade, and concluded with the "youre gonna be reeeeeealy disappointed when you see what he gets traded for". Hes 23, a franchise center, signed for several years. Unless gms are willing to engage in collusion against the sabres, and artificially keep the market bad, i cant see it. Owners and gms, that mind you, bring us the annual july 1st of stupidity, when 30 year old ufas get 7 years and a power ball jackpot contract. Itll be a game of chicken, who wants to add on one more piece with value, with the idea that buffalo will probably have to take back 10 million in cap one way or another.
