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

Watch EDM do something.

 

to BUF: Nugent-Hopkins (re-sign and trade), Neal, Bouchard and two 1sts

 

Draisaitl - McDavid - Puljujarvi

Khaira - Eichel - Yamamoto

I doubt Nugent Hopkins agrees to a sign and trade with Buffalo.

 

When Eichel is moved, whoever they get needs to be under contract because that team is going to be bad for awhile.

 

I feel like Carolina is a subtle contender for Eichel. They're a piece away from being contenders and have the defensive depth to part with some high caliber guys but still remain highly competitive.

 

Florida, NY Rangers, and Columbus could also be interesting landing spots. In a Columbus deal, you can center it around Laine + picks (CBJ has 3 1st rounders this year) + Seth Jones on an expiring deal for Eichel. Imagine turning Dubois into Eichel?!? That would be a genius move for Kekalainen. With a new coach, CBJ should rebound nicely next year.

I think of the Canucks were to go there, and they won't because Benning is conservative with his trades, if could be:

 

to BUF:  Horvat, Schmidt, Rathbone and a 1st

 

or something equally ridiculous

5 1sts or equivalent is insane. No one is going to do that. I'm sure they'd like that tho. 

Can we give them 5 Jake Virtanens?

If I'm Columbus, I'll give them Domi + 2021 CBJ 1st + CBJ 2022 1st + 2021 TOR 1st + Tarasov/Korpisalo. Eichel as the playmaker and Laine as the shooter will make this team an absolute monster to compete with. Unfortunately, they don't have the prospect depth to fill in the rest of their holes internally so they'll have to work with some UFAs. Even though they won't have picks, they'll still need to continue to bring young players into their organization.

 

With Eichel though, this is how I see CBJ top nine lineup shaping out:

 

LAINE EICHEL BJORKSTAND

FOUDY ROSLOVIC ATKINSON

ROBINSON TEXIER STENLUND

 

So in conclusion, they'd be a composed similar to a team like Dallas with Seguin and Benn at the top and some lesser guys filling out the rest of the team. Buffalo does well in this deal too, they get a top 10 pick in 2021 a 3rd first rounder for this draft and another for the year after that. They also get a potential number one goaltender to play with Ullmark.

 

However, if I'm Buffalo, an ideal trade partner is  the Rangers(Kakko, Chytil, Georgiev and 2021 1st) or Blackhawks (Dach, 2021 1st, D. Strome and 2022 2nd) and if if Buffalo, ideally the Los Angeles Kings(Turcotte/Byfield + 2021 1st  + Bjornfot). The Kings are the best fit even though they already have 1C in Kopitar making $10 Million, Eichel would be exactly what the doctor ordered to make the Kings a contender once more. With Eichel and McDavid in our division for the 2021-2022 season, we can forget about making noise in the playoffs unless we get a guy like Savoie or Wright in the 2022 draft.

Yea that wont work for both.. In ur dreams. Horvat Hughes and a 1st will not even net u Eichel alone. Add pod and thats possible. 

 

The most I'll give up for eichel is 

1) 1st round pick 2021 (Even IF its 1st or 2nd overall) 

2) Boeser 

3) Miller 

4) 2nd round pick 2022

these tires have been spinning so long it's time for some retreads...

let someone else put those on.

 

I remember the day Eichel was drafted - Buffalo 'lost' the lottery - Tim Murray was practically crying on television.  

Poor baby had to 'settle' for Eichel.

What an asshat performance that was.

Foreshadowed what was to come.

 

What a gong show franchise.

 

I hope the same thing happens to the Rags...

 

I'm thankful all the Skinner proposals on these boards never came to fruition.  An even bigger bullet dodged than Jake Gardiner.

The only way i would consider a trade for eichel is if they retain 2M.

 

miller/horvat 2021 1st + conditional 2nd that becomes a 1st if we win one playoff series for eichel?

Is Eichel going to really make us a winner, especially considering the cost to acquire him?  It would cost us Bo and our first.  Imo that’s too much.

Buffalo, you can have Loui, Roussel, Beagle, and Virtanen.  We'll take a disgruntled player like Eichel off your hands.

Only if they include Dahlin. I mean, why should he be stuck there longer???

 

;)

That's right, Alf.  I think even more.  I don't want to see our team gutted for one player.  I see people giving away Boes, Miller, Hughes, Bo, etc.  All those fine passes from Eichel, but no snipers to be found.  I say stay the course.  Interesting prospects starting to look good with Lind, Rathbone, Gadj, Podz and probably a winner (or 2) in the draft.

eichel scored 36g and 78p in 68 games last year. but will he be the same after his injuries heal?

 

i would make a offer dependent on a successful surgery.

 

if eichel is healthy he's a top 10 center in the league, better than pettersson.

I bet you...

I bet like...

I mean...

 

The entire Canucks team, plus Cypress mountain and the Pacific Ocean and Jupiter isn’t enough for Eichel.

 

Did I do my cheap hyperbolically fuelled  VanFan impression right?
