Is this trade delayed because of someone even dumber than the fantasy traders here?

In other words, fans overrate their own, and a fan is running this show? Sorry... "fan."

I bet if it was up to KA this sideshow would be over.

No I think the fans would have had a deal worked out by the draft.  Real things like money and player health and surgery options and maybe even CBA now have got in the way (NHL business stuff).

Anaheim has always been the most attractive partner from our perspective, but the Rangers, Wild and Vegas should be the most interested buyers.

The Rangers still make the most sense in terms of a team where Eichel is a perfect fit for where they are and what they need, and where they could afford to pay a fair price yet still 'win' the trade.

Just don't pay attention to their fans.

Or the beat reporters and journalists that cover the rangers. I swear some of the worst trade proposals come out of the NY city media.....The Rangers should give the Sabres the 5th and 6th best prospect they have and a 3rd round pick in 2023, but ONLY if the Sabres eat most of Eichel's contract.    I swear that is some of the stuff I hear about the the Media from NY city.

I don't see how trading, say Lafreniere and Schneider for example, for Eichel wouldn't make the Rangers a better team, now, obviously, but also for the next five years.

Yes, other pieces would have to be involved to make the cap work, but if I'm a Ranger fan, I'm all over a deal like that; I win that deal.

Yet most wouldn't even consider it.

They either have a much different opinion of Jack Eichel than I do, or they are outright liars.

League sources report that Jack Eichel and Kevyn Adams have been seen together at the offices of a well known relationship coach. Out of an abundance of respect for the privacy of the individuals we will not publish the name of the world famous marriage counselor involved. The sense around golf courses favored by NHL players is that Eichel and the Sabres are on a path to reconciliation. Eichel's new agent Pat Brisson is said to be preparing to call a press conference where he lays the entire blame for the friction on Eichel's former agent Peter Fish.

 

This was on HFB.

Personally I would absolutely love this to be true

I believe this was a joke.

A very interesting take.

Do I detect a zing at the creator and overseer of Hockey Hell in Buffalo?  
 

I am sticking with the “this trade is not over because Eichel and Fish spooked the GM’s” theory.  Until there is more clarity on the neck of our favorite pain in the neck, this trade hangs in limbo.

I agree that the move would make the Rangers a better team once Eichel joined their lineup but I think that it was true for many of the teams that were or are rumored to be in on Eichel.  LA, Minnesota too in my opinion.  Everyone loves their A+ prospects I guess at least until they hit their ceilings in the NHL.  It seems to me that even first round draft picks are treasured more after the pick is taken (when the pick becomes a prospect with a name and hype about their potential).

I remember not too long ago being excited about Zemgus, Zadorov, Grigorenko, and Risto. In hindsight, I’d trade all 4 for a Jack Eichel.

4 pieces, all former 1st round picks.  Yes makes you wonder about the potential return for Eichel.  I hope that we do better with at least one of the prospects coming back to be a top 6 NHL player (assuming this trade ever happens).

Developing: Kings/Sabres Deal Being Worked. Eichel. Six total pieces. (E4)

I was reading this too (agree that Eklund's stuff never pans out).  But it's fun to speculate on the Kings again.  Rasmus Kupari, Akil Thomas, Arthur Kaliyev, Alex Turcotte, Quinton Byfield, Brandt Clarke.  Most likely they won't want to move Byfield still and maybe not Clarke (their 2021 top pick) but there's some nice talent in their other top prospects to pick from.  I would think that they may be wanting to move Gabe Vilardi to make room for Byfield.

Well, the Kings already have $15.5 million invested in two veteran centres for the next three years, so what’s another $10 million centre, right?

And they signed LD Edler to go with Bjornfot and Maatta, so they definitely need to add Hagg.

And they have $2.7 million in cap space, so they shouldn’t have any problem fitting another $11.6 under the cap.

I mean everybody thinks Eklund makes stuff up, but you think he could at least put in a little more effort.

Personally I don’t really see the Kings making an offer, but if they did Johnny Quick would almost certainly be included as a cap dump.

Something like Eichel and Dell for Quick, Turcotte, and 2 other good prospects/picks might be in the ballpark of what might be on the table, but even that leaves the Kings over the cap.

Looks like Eklund is going to make the rounds for Eichel. New York last week, the Kings this week, maybe Minny next?

post something other than hockey buzz if you find it. What I mean is something more credible regarding this “rumor and speculation”. 👍🏼

I agree hockey buzz is usually crap and have said so many times.  That being said when was the last credible rumor posted about an Eichel trade?  I'm not sure there's been any in this entire thread.  There's been nothing other than pure speculation.  Elliot Friedman said he really hadn't heard much except the same few teams kicking the tires again.  Eklund mentioning LA today made me look up if there was anything new on their prospects and they did have a development camp in August.

I'm looking forward to camp starting so there's something more interesting to discuss for the Sabres.
