The Big Question is, will Jack Eichel be traded before free agency starts or at some point before the NHL season starts?
NHL Trade Rumors have been going around about where Eichel could land since the NHL trade deadline. The main suitors were the LA Kings, Anaheim Ducks and New York Rangers.
Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman is reporting Jack Eichel is going to be traded in the near future, even though Buffalo Sabres GM Kevyn Adams has stated, “would have no problem at all if Jack Eichel is on our team when we start training camp.”
Friedman went on to say the Anaheim Ducks, Minnesota Wild and Calgary Flames are the most engaged with Buffalo on a trade for Eichel. Friedman also stated, the Montreal Canadiens have engaged, but not anywhere near a point where Buffalo would say yes.
The one thing that could hold up a trade this week is there are reports Eichel still needs disc replacement surgery to be done later this summer.
