David Pagnotta: Jack Eichel’s representative, Pat Brisson, continues to talk with the Buffalo Sabres GM Kevyn Adams.
Have been informed that Brisson is dealing with Adams and is talking with groups that have an interest in Eichel.
The Fourth Period: Teams that have actually revealed some interest in Eichel consist of the New York Rangers, Los Angeles Kings, Anaheim Ducks and Columbus Blue Jackets.
The Sabres haven’t pulled back on their asking cost of a minimum of 4 possessions. They are searching for first-round choice and a bundle of leading potential customers and young, tested NHL gamers in any Eichel offer.
Jimmy Murphy: As of recently and uncertain if things have actually altered, however the Los Angeles Kings have actually moved far from trade talks with the Buffalo Sabres about Eichel.
NHL Watcher: Darren Dreger on TSN’s That’s Hockey on Eichel: “There are a few teams that I’m told are in the mix, speculation ranges from LA Kings, perhaps Anaheim, both those clubs have downplayed that. Social media continues to point at the Rangers, the Rangers source says no, that’s not the case”
Nick Kypreos: “Some @NHL teams like @NYRangers who are in on Eichel are passed medical issues. It appears #NYR will support Jack for artificial disc replacement surgery providing they can come to terms on a hockey trade with @BuffaloSabres . No indication they’re close on a deal.”
Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet: There is a genuine push to get the Jack Eichel scenario solved as he requires some kind of treatment done earlier than later on. He’s had the ability to share some details as he’s getting his own MRIs.
What will occur initially – a trade or the surgical treatment? Does he play any video games for the Sabres to increase his trade worth?
There are some groups that may be alright with the disc replacement treatment.
