    This is an excuse.
    Eichel is a "line driving force".
    If he isn't producing, as not only his line leader, but Captain of the team, it 8s because he's disinterested. Not because of Tage Thompson.

    Oh I recall. That's why it was a slam dunk Babcock would go there.

    Hey, that zamboni driver was a Scotiabank Arena employee, so technically, he was a Maple Leaf, which means the Leafs lost that game to themselves.

    Jeff Skinner scored 37 goals two years prior in 3 less games played with Victor Rask as his center. So, is Eichel the difference of 3 goals due to Rask (He actually had 27 goals at 5v5 in both situations)?

    Might have something to do with the fact that the word going around is he has a shoulder injury that will require surgery that he is trying to gut out until the season ends. If you watch the games it's obvious he is trying to avoid contact and his skating is nowhere near his usual level.

    How much? The quality of one player is almost insignifiant in a team game.

    This year Jack Eichel has 12 points in 13 games in Buffalo. They got a good one in No. 9!

    Put Matthews in Buffalo and they are in the same position they have been for the past 5 years.

    I’m shocked to enter a thread about Buffalo talking about Matthews

    every thread turns into a talk about Matthews.

    HF has a perverted obsession with Mr Mustache.

    Its kind of a curse that Skinner hasn't scored at all he should probably have the most goals on the team with the chances he has had this season..Eichel is also snakebitten neither player can buy a goal even when they get to the high danger areas. I'd like to think isn't the real norm and more of an awful start. Maybe the Sabres will bounce back and have a better late season grind rather than start great and end up awful.

    Lol there's some seriously pathetic posting going on in this thread. Imagine being so mad about sabres vs Leafs or Eichel vs Matthews or Barkov discussions from ages ago that you feel the need to troll this thread with Matthews spam. Guess this is what you have to resort to when you finally have a decent team but never get close to having success anyway?

    They would be worse, Eichel is just a much better player, a leader if you will.

    It may not always show up in the stats, but it's there

    More like Leafs posters are the most numerous on HFboards and won't stop invading main board threads that have nothing to do with the Leafs or Matthews and turn it into a Leafs/Matthews thread. Doesn't matter the subject, every thread on the main boards turns into a Matthews/Leafs thread. You guys are obnoxious.

    I feel like Skinner is the only one of the three they really need to worry about and the sample is small. Too soon to worry about Eichel and Hall.

    Yep. Eichel will be fine. Hall, doesn’t matter. Even if he is terrible the rest of the way, you just don’t re-sign him. Skinner is the issue. And they should remember that when considering whether to re-sign Hall.

    Just to put some perspective on this, how much money are some actually productive teammate combos making (i.e. McDavid/Draisaitl, Matthews/Marner, MacKinnon/Rantanen)

    Hall is an idiot. He chased money when he could have taken a bit less and been on a dominant Avs team.
