They wouldn't. Most are lateral at best and don't solve the actual problems this team has.
Eichel for McDavid
Sabres wouldn't trade Eichel for Barzal & Pulock? Explain please..
I think he meat the Isles wouldn't trade Barzal and Pulock for Eichel lol.
That's a strong No
Ah I thought he meant he wouldn't trade Eichel for any of those packages. My bad.
Oh im not sure lmao
Eichel was just named captain of the team..is face of franchise and signed for 8 more years.
Not to mention that the guy is having a breakout year and still has a huge potential for getting even better. Sky is the limit with this guy with his athletic ability and skills.
Barzal is a beast and is going to be a top player in this league ... Pulock is a good young promising D but I dont see him as a #1... We have Risto, Dahlin and Pilut who will all contribute offensively as Pulock does...he isnt needed.
The Sabres aren’t trading Eichel and no team with a quality 1C is going to trade him along with a quality 1D for a slight upgrade at one of those positions.
Edmonton definitely needs another center with a high cap hit. We have the depth after Larsson to easily accommodate this request.
Who wouldn’t love a RD collection of Benning, Petrovic and Manning.
IMO, the beneficiaries of this deal are;
Fringe teams are;
Teams who say no are;
Neither Carolina or NYI benefit.
The difference between Aho and Eichel isn't really much anymore. Maybe in hype only. If Aho were drafted in the top 10 and played in a larger market, this proposal would rightly be laughed at.
Classic scenario of Buffalo only wanting to trade said player if the deal is a massive overpayment.
Buffalo: We’ll trade you Eichel for Eichel +...
Other GMs: No.
With a side of Rasmus Dahlin....
I don’t see how anyone benefits from these trades. Buffalo can’t lose their superstar. Those teams can’t gut their roster for Eichel.
MAYBE the Edmonton trade if they really feel like Eichel is a huge upgrade to Drai. But noooooooooooooooooo these are all so off
As a sens fan I would not do this deal if I knew that Duchene would sign an extension wouldnt even think twice about it. Batherson and Tkachuk are both going to be top 6 wingers for a long time. If I know Duchene is not signing an extension id probably do it.
Not sure what's worse, wanting to trade Eichel or some of the trade proposals. WPG one is hella bad
I think all teams clearly lose, but you have it backwards, if anything. How is Draisaitl+Larsson bad for Edmonton, but Barzal+Pulock good for NYI?!
For Buffalo? I mean, if I'm them I'm not trading Eichel to begin with, but that isn't the point of the thread...I think it's pretty solid pieces:
#1 LD, signed to a good deal
Probable lottery pick
1C/2C (much more likely 2C) prospect
Veteran stop-gap to shelter CM
