Sabres decline all trades and thank you for participating.
What I have learned from this thread:
Aho and Pulock are drastically underrated in some quarters.
From a ticket sales standpoint Eichel in NYC would be a draw. Eichel is still the best player in any proposal listed it's just EDM's cap would be hurting after obtaining another quality d-man.
This isn't sane.
Lindholm is solid. But not nearly enough to tempt me to trade Eichel
Lottery pick is just that...a lottery.
Steele is an ok piece but again... not nearly enough to taking a risk on a prospect
Henrique is blah. Stop gap for who to be our #1 Franchise Center? I'm certainly not holding my breath for either Steele or Mitts to become that.
OP’s valuations are pretty terrible.
No, they would not.
In what way? Under/overrating Eichel?
Where did I say I wanted to trade Eichel?
I don't understand what's so hard to get. This is a trade forum where the whole idea is to propose trades and discuss player's value(s). It's not rocket science.
Big Eichel fan. He's made huge strides this year. But as objective as I can be as a Sabres fan ...
Eichel to Islanders for Barzal and Pulock. Yes
Eichel to Ottawa for Duchene (signed 4+ years), Batherson and Tkachuk. Yes
Eichel & 1st to Arizona for Keller and OEL. No
Eichel to Carolina for Aho and Pesce. Coin-flip.
Eichel to Winnepeg for Connor, Morrissey and Laine. Big yes.
Eichel to Edmonton for Draisaitl and Larsson. Coin-flip.
Think you're overrating our boy Jack a bit, OP. There's some serious talent coming back in most of those offers.
Don't worry about the criticism. Apart from confirmed trade news, this board is strictly for laughs.
Honestly think Buffalo says no to all of these except the Winnipeg one, and in that one Winnipeg says no.
WPG proposal is abismal. They give up two top 6 wingers and a great young defensman for their likely 2C. Don’t get me wrong they need something better than Little in that spot, but at that price? Yeeeesh
Most of them = overvalue of Eichel, or undervaluing the other pieces. ARZ is the opposite though.
I hope Lou can get Pulock signed to his next contract before people realize how good he is lol
I'd love Eichel on the Canucks. That being said, moving Hughes (ok maybe not Hughes), Pettersson, Boeser or Horvat, or this year's first (we're hosting, so unless it's at the draft...) won't happen, even for him....leaving no pieces Buffalo would want for him.
And even with out my five piece long "we need to keep them" list, probably no from the Sabres.
Why are they trading him in this scenario? I'd be looking to trade anyone BUT him first, except maybe Dahlin.
Like these thought experiments are never constructive with out back ground and realism.
Honestly, for what he costs and what Eichel brings to the table (points/attitude) I wouldn't consider any of those trade from any of the other teams... I like Jack, but there are a lot of other players i'd break the bank to try and acquire before him.
Also that Ottawa trade is bad. Would rather keep the assets in trading Duchene + 2 potential top 6 forwards in Tkachuk/Batherson.. and that Winnipeg trade is also hilariously bad.
He's been a Sabres fan for all of 4 months and is making trade proposals for Eichel
There's no way Buffalo trades Eichel. Even if Buffalo had a fleeting thought of trading Eichel, O'Reilly would still have to be here. Eichel's a Sabres for the next 8 years.
1st,Hosang and dal colle
Do people feel that the difference between Aho and Eichel is a top 2 / top 4, very solid RHD, signed on a great contract through 2024? Aho is as good a goal scorer as Jack and their P/G is 0.9 vs. 0.82 for their careers. That's about a 7 point difference over an 82 game schedule.
I can't see the Canes doing this at all. (and I realize this is all hypothetical as the Sabres won't move Eichel).
I'm just curious... What is your logic at all behind the Winnipeg trade?
Logic is for Sabres to trade away their only 1st line center for some wingers and a dman ...while Winnipeg trades away their winger core and dman so they can have 2 elite centers to pass to nobody
