    Might as well trade the rest of your team for him at that point....

    You are well aware that if the Sabres were so high on him they'd make him the centerpiece of a trade tantamount to franchise suicide they wouldn't have passed over him in the draft.

    Also the 2021 draft is probably going to be 2012 level awful with all the crap that's gone on so the proposed 2 late first in it would be a pitiful return.

    And just as a general rule I wish people would follow with proposals: Ask yourself: If I was the other team's GM would I honestly find this acceptable?

    I see either Vancouver, Calgary or Edmonton as the most likely trade partners were a trade to happen.

    Edmonton? What players or pieces would you think would be involved on their end? I don't see the high end prospects or players required to get a deal done obviously assuming they aren't moving McDavid or Draisaitl.

    CGY is the only maybe out of that 3. EDM and VAN are no shows for this, nobody wants to think that though. He's staying in the east for sure

    It was a half assed idea.
    Both teams have a need.
    Eichel has almost demanded a trade for 3 years now
    And Calgary needs to get out of the mushy middle, they are aging and their window is closing.
    Buffalo has gone through a few GM's and coaches trying to get back to the show so their GM might be a little more creative in altering the look of their team.
    Vancouver is stagnant, they will need to rebuild again soon or the new GM might make a could of bold moves.
    If Eichel stayed in Buffalo then maybe a Boeser or Horvat for Dahlin + or some combination to get Buffalo additional scoring and help solve Vancouver's defensive depth problem, Edler retires soon.

    Boeser/Horvat and Juloevi
    for
    Dahlin and Cozens

    More Boeser though

    Buffalo isn't moving Dahlin or Cozens. It just doesn't make sense for a team staring at another year outside of the playoffs to be trading away their best young pieces.
    Edit- I think it's more likely they move some expiring contracts like Staal, McCabe, Montour, maybe Hall, possibly Reinhart who's an RFA at season's end to get picks/prospects/young players to re-tool the roster.

    Colorado found itself slightly better off than Buffalo and they traded away Stastny, Duchene and O'Rielly when that combination didn't work.
    Eichel has all but given Buffalo an ultimatum, he is tired of losing and answering questions, he has thrown player under the bus and had management coaxed him into retracting one demand he made after the LA game year before last.
    So the question become is Eichel worth Dahlin and Cozens if there is another stud forward coming back?

    Sharks would be throwing something like Meier/Labanc, Ferraro/Knyzhov, practically any set of prospects and picks for Eichel. They can absolutely compete. They had a strong 2020 draft and have a pretty good amount of young roster players to include in a deal with guys like John Leonard, Noah Gregor, and Rudolfs Balcers.

    I see a lot of Eichel pipe dreams being bandied about. No the SJS can't match others offers and it makes little sense to overly worry about creating cap space when we can't attract big name FA

    I think people overestimate how much teams are actually willing to give up for Eichel...probably myself included.

    Probably true . It was a different sport but the premise of the story I read was that super stars rarely bring back what they're worth. Wish I could find it

    If they’re selling Eichel, they’re not going to want Meier. They’re going to want much younger players as the being a new rebuild. Sure, you guys did pretty well with the picks you had in 2020, but Leonard, Noah Gregor, Etc. Don’t move the needle much for Eichel. Go ahead and make your best offer.

    The way Eichel is playing the Sabres might just put him on waivers.:D

    I sincerely doubt Buffalo wouldn't want Meier. He's 24 and they have to take salary back to do a deal with pretty much anybody. That'd be like saying they're not going to want Kaprizov because he's only 7 months younger and that's just too old.

    Guerin won't. The expansion, & Fiala/ kaprizov contract extension with Joel Erickson ek contract extension are of his utmost importance

    I don’t think they would want Kaprizov.
