[Rumour] Eichel wants out of Buffalo. Says there is disconnect with organization.

I think the only way he gets traded is if its call for conditional picks. E.g, 2022 and 2023 conditional 1sts if he plays full seasons, something like that. Otherwise I don't think GMs will touch this with upfront assets. 

Yeah the other thing to mention is that if he ends up on LTIR the contract will probably not be insurable as the injury history will already be known and with an artificial disc replacement no insurance company will touch that contract.  So even conditional picks are risky because Eichel could end up on LTIR 2-3 years from now and the owner that traded for him will have to pay $20-30 million of his salary while he's not even playing.

this thing is just going to get uglier and uglier. Maybe the best thing here is mutual termination.

Eichel is owed $50 million. He will never agree to terminate that contract. It’s most likely his last deal.

This situation just keeps becoming more and more of a gong show. 

Unless Buffalo drastically lowers the trade price nothing will change.

Guess not. Would u accept low assets for petey? 

If it was crippling our rebuild and damaging future signings yes.

I dont blame Buffalo for trying to get max return but ultimately this corcus along with the injury situation are just lowering his trade value.

Petey doesn’t have neck degeneration and is not waiting for an artificial disc replacement. I mean that is something you do in your 40’s or 50’s.  Eichel is only 24. His career may be in jeopardy. 
 

At this point I’m thinking Eichel may have negative value. Good luck to Buffalo getting anything at all for a guy who’s owed $50 million and already needs an artificial disc to put into his neck.  Derek Dorsett had to retire with a similar injury.

Sounds like Jack might have something to say and he’s getting ready to step up to the microphone…

 

 

 

I wonder if he's going to just go get the surgery on his own. I mean no one can really stop him, its not like Buffalo's GM is going to be in the room.

That might void his contract, or at least it might in buffalos opinion. 

 

I can only imagine the poopy storm should he get unsuccessful surgery, from doctors not sanctioned by the sabres. Yeah it is Eichels body and life, but you sign the line you are under some control as an asset.
