    I am a fan of Buffalo and do like Eichel, but just for argument's sake and to spice things up, would these trades be of interest for either team(s)?

    Eichel to Islanders for Barzal and Pulock.

    Eichel to Ottawa for Duchene (signed 4+ years), Batherson and Tkachuk.

    Eichel & 1st to Arizona for Keller and OEL.

    Eichel to Carolina for Aho and Pesce.

    Eichel to Winnepeg for Connor, Morrissey and Laine.

    Eichel to Edmonton for Draisaitl and Larsson.


    Which teams is favored in these trades? Which one has the best equal value?

    Carolina and Edmonton easily say no

    Probably no for the Islanders, Winnipeg and Arizona as well.

    I dont know nearly enough about what the hell is going on Ottawa to speak to that situation.

    Every single other team says no. You think Eichel is worth Barzal PLUS a young top pairing defenseman?

    If Buffalo trades Eichel it’ll almost assuredly result in a significant step back for them. Even if some of those trades have no chance of being accepted by the other team.

    For Ottawa that would be easy yes.

    The rest say no.

    I'm not a fan of the jets after Laine pooped on the blues this year, so I would love to see the jets completely dismantle their future to have too many good centers and not enough depth anywhere else... that said, even I know Winnipeg would laugh hysterically at this.

    Eichel will always be a bigger, stronger more natural Center than Aho (I don't mind anyone saying Eichel > Aho), but at this point I wouldn't swap Aho for Eichel straight up. Canes are thriving around Aho's intensity and I'm curious to see where his development plateaus.

    Eichel for Martin Necas + Adam Fox + Jake Bean + 2019 1st

    That's about what I'd offer. Four good 1st equivalents. Could swap in Brett Pesce or Dougie Hamilton for a couple of those assets if desired.

    I’d easily do Ottawa’s unprotected 1st + for Eichel. Buffalo wouldn’t though.

    Nah. Isles pass

    Trotz is developing Barzal into what Trotz calls an elite 2 way center. Stats are down a bit in Trotz's defensive system, but Barzal is more defensively responsible .

    And RHD Pulock is eating up minutes,developing well.

    Isles say no simply because they don't plan on giving up the top forward and future #1 defensman for Jack Eichel.

    Sabres aren’t trading Eichel. Period.

    That's no reason to not discuss a trade in a trade forum on the internet.

    99,9% of all trades here never happen; what is the point of even having this sub-forum if you can't discuss trade proposals and values of players?

    A moderator should be able to express himself better than with a degrading smiley.

    Degrading?

    You need thicker skin.

    The Sabres would trade Eichel for most of the offers in the OP.

    It's super thick. :)

    But a facepalm-smiley is meant to be degrading and to belittle, you can't deny that.

    Yeah. I mean if the Isles called up Buffalo and offered that package, Botterill would drive Eichel to the airport himself. I can't see why or how Buffalo wouldn't do it.
