Good morning. If you’re out east, good afternoon. I hope you are well.

Let’s get right to it.





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.
