    Re: Trade Eichel

    The Buffalo Sabres have never even finished with a .500 record since Jack Eichel joined the franchise, This is year 6!

    I wish Kevyn Adams all the best, He's in a real tight spot here.

    Yeah, but at no fault of jacks. I blame the pegulas

    What moves were you against the Pegula's making?

    I was for murray. He flamed out. I was for Botterill. He was bad.

    I was good with bylsma, bad choice. I was apprehensive about housley. Bad choice. I was excited about Kruger after reading about players rave about him, he has been the worst.

    I was excited about their ownership for a while, but a decade of futility has gotten us here

    Too bad Pat Lafontaine has an NDA.

    Because that's where it all went wrong.

    The Sabres better hire some hockey people and quick.

    Kevyn Adams and the Pegula's going up against these NHL veteran executives and player agents is a bad matchup.

    Your Rangers aren’t going to win anything anytime soon, I’d worry more about them & less about trolling here.

    I don't know. Murray was lafontaines pick, not pegulas.

    There's a ton that went wrong and almost all of it is on the Pegulas.

    But that's not what this is about at this point.

    Sportsnet notes that a potential Eichel trade would be the first trade of such a high end, in prime center since jumbo joe thornton in November of 2005. It also notes the horrific return for thornton and how buffalo would seek high end, elite prospects in return

    The rangers have done great through the rebuild. I'm jealous. They need a few more pieces but they are much more advanced

    Jack is the teams Captain, They pay him $10 million, His body language speaks volumes.

    Skating around like you have Mono and rather be somewhere else is a bad example to the rest of the team.

    So yes, Jack bares some responsibility for the mess.




    The Pegula's have done a poor job with their hires.

    They hire first time general managers, And they micro manage them.

    The did the same thing with the Buffalo Bills.

    It all turned around for the Bills when they hired a veteran GM who built the Carolina Panthers.

    Dylan Cozens is coming for Eichels "C"


    I'm really starting to think the Sabres are better off just keeping Jack.

    They won't get the return they want, And certainly not during the COVID NHL.



    Sabres need to bite the bullet and just buy out Jeff Skinner.

    What a train wreck. What's the name of that George Clooney movie where they explode the nuclear weapon on the train? Yeah, that one.

    I'm fine with them keeping jack if the return isn't there. I've always felt that way. They have a five year guarantee if they can't find a good return. Its a nice insurance policy that they don't HAVE to trade for one of the games premier players

    Re: Trade Eichel

    Adams was asked if Eichel has requested a trade, And if he see's Eichel in the Sabres future plans.

    Adams answer was that Eichel has not requested a trade, But he made no mention of his future besides saying 'they talk.'

    Re: Trade Eichel

    Keeping Eichel is the 2nd worst thing this organization can do.

    His attitude, work ethic, demeanor permeate the team.

    He is one of the main problems, but not the main problem.

    That's the Pegulas themselves.

    And you can't fix that, you just have to hope for some luck on a good hockey hire and they stay out of the way.

    Re: Trade Eichel

    The ONLY way the Sabres are ever going to improve is if Pegula sells the Sabres....or if he...well, you can guess what the other option is.

    Other than that, the **** show will continue at 1 Knox Plaza.
