    There would have to be tons of add ons and picks to eaven things out either way depending on how you look at things, but I think you have a good basis for a trade in the summer?

    Add Texier or Ristolainen or however, but I think this would be a win win trade for both organisations..

    Seth Jones would leave Buffalo July 1st, 2022.

    Too much risk that Jones doesn't re-sign in Buffalo I think

    Only trade if there would be an extension in place for Jones of course

    The Sabres have Dahlin. They do not have someone to step up in Eichel's place. Therefore C for D does not make sense for them.

    No matter how much I may wish it was different...

    Bad for Sabres

    If both were locked up and at their best you go with Eichel who can be in the 8th-12th best player in the league while at his best Jones is the 4th'-6th best defenseman and a non top 15 player in the league.

    Jones has been underwhelming for multiple years now and is not a top 10 defenseman. Eichel was consistently improving before this injury riddled horrible tank year.

    [email protected] for another 5 years is much more valuable than Jones for 1 more year

    I'd do it for Blue Jackets. I'm sure Sabres would say no. Jones could walk quite soon.

    Dude. Bro. Are you really taking potshots at Buffalo’s ability to retain big-name free agents in a thread involving the Columbus Blue Jackets??

    Maybe with a team friendly extension and a significant add you could do it

    You mean Dahlin? Sandin is a leafs prospect and while good he will be no where Jones or if Dahlin rebounds level.

    Jones was in the conversation as best D man in the league a few seasons ago. he is still a solid 1D but even with an extension his value isn't close to an elite 1C

    Poster originally had mistakenly typed sandin instead of Dahlin. They edited it now so the issue is fixed

    LMFAO Seth Jones is a pending UFA July 1st 2022 Noway does he get Jack Eichel alone. Buffalo wont be adding but Columbus will be big time. Zero chance i see Seth Jones signing long term with Buffalo.

    Why ? Do you hate Jones that much and want to see him have no further progression in his career?

    No it wouldn't. All Buffalo sees is the clock ticking down to midnight on July 1, 2022. That's when Jones gets the hell out of Dodge. Eichel, whatever his faults, was stupid enough to tie his wagon to Buffalo for all eternity. That makes him infinitely more valuable to the Sabres than most other assets that one might propose to swap for him.

    I would love to hear your argument to Jones as to why he would want to sign a nice, fat, long contract to play for the Buffalo Sabres through the rest of his prime years and beyond. Go ahead and make your pitch.

    He's getting multiple offers as a free agent for excellent term and dollars from contenders, so why choose Buffalo?

    This is terrible for the Sabres. Jones hasn’t even been all that great this year either.
