JACK EICHEL SWEEPSTAKES
It’s becoming more evident as time passes on that Jack Eichel’s tenure with the #Sabres is coming to an end. Would a trade to one specific team out west best suit Eichel and the Sabres? @_Franklin_H has more:— WGR 550 (@WGR550) June 17, 2021
Jack Eichel is a very, very good hockey player. Whichever team that acquires his services will get a franchise centre, one that would have certainly gone first overall had it not been the year where Connor McDavid was available. The return for Eichel will almost certainly not be enough to a franchise that’s been floundering well before Eichel’s arrival.
You can keep him out east, thanks. At least, keep him out of the Pacific.
