    It's on both sides. Leaf fans make an unneeded comment on Matthews and every single time someone else feels compelled to reply

    They have to decide about Hall before the deadline. My best guess is they extend him.

    I've brought up the quality of linemates argument several times but they keep beating the drum...Insist Eichel has made everyone and had zero talent to work with on the wings. What a farce.

    Does it really matter where goals come from? Production is production. We aren't going to remove 262 of Ovechkins goals because they came on the powerplay.

    Ovechkin also scores a ton 5 on 5 tho. The PP can dry up, if you can consistently score in all situations thats more valuable. Buffalo Powerplay started off super hot last season too when they were in their typical early season hot streak. So yeah it matters

    They're going to pay seattle to take him and he'll score 30 there

    At this point the best course of action would be to just fold the franchise and then apply for a new expansion team in Buffalo. At least they'd get a full squad of new players. It's astonishing how awful that team has been for a decade.

    Ryan O’reilly was failing there and then went on to win the cup, smythe, and selke. Hard to understand what’s going on there, even if the team is bad you expect talented guys like Eichel, Hall, Skinner, Dahlin, to produce

    Dahlin is certainly producing and playing very well lately. Top line is just useless most of their points come from the PP.

    Hall, Eichel, and skinner have a combined 3 G and 21 A. 24 points.

    6 players have more points than that by themselves.

    This is why Buffalo can't have nice things! o_O

    I read recently that some players want to win and others just want to get paid. I don't know which category Hall fails into for sure but signing with buffalo makes you think.

    He certainly doesn't play like he's just playing to get paid.

    On paper this is an all star line and should be a top 5 line in the NHL.

    Yep, but they're in three separate lines. Well I guess one of them is in the pressbox atm.

    Eichel is starting to fall into the Rick Nash trap.

    "Imagine how good he would be if he played on a good team?"

    I heard that for many years about Nash, and I hear it now about Eichel.

    Well maybe the lack of team success has something to do with Eichel and/or his leadership qualities?

    He is becoming a real candidate for most over-rated player.

    Well at least you're doing your part and not feeding into it.

    Those that choose Eichel over Barzal going forward need to see how Barzal is evolving and improving on both offense and d.

    No way I would make that trade.

    Eichel has improved every season but this one. Last year was his best ever, and he had stretches when he arguably was the best player in the league. Hopefully the GMs aren't as "what have you done for me lately" as HFboards.

    I like both, but that's a trade I'd make.

    Hall hasn't been good in years, that Hart was an absolute fluke and anyone that pays him after this year should lose their job the next day after he signs the contract.

    It really feels like the team has checked out.

    So I guess they rebuild around Cozens and Dahlin? Get a good return for Eichel? It has to be painful for that fanbase to go through this.

    If they trade Eichel they won't see the playoffs until 2030

    If they don’t trade him, they won’t see the playoffs until 2030 anyway :sarcasm:
