According to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman the Buffalo Sabres had a meeting with Captain Jack Eichel’s new representatives to try and work on a deal.
It is unclear exactly how the meeting went and whether it was about a contract extension or about where Eichel would like to be traded. It seems however as the Sabres have started to make some calls to teams around the league that had shown interest in the former number two overall pick.
It has been a long offseason of Jack Eichel trade rumors and with the season getting closer and closer it remains to be seen where he will end up playing. Keep in mind, we aren’t even fully sure that Eichel will be ready to go once the season starts due to his injury.
It really blows my mind how long they have let this thing drag out for. Just trade him and get it over with, he clearly doesn’t want to be there and Buffalo is doing nothing but hurting themselves the longer this goes.
