BUF - Eichel

MTL - 2021 1st & 2nd, 2022 1st & 2nd, Kotkaniemi


1.) 24 Jul 2021 01:50:24
Not bad but I think Buffalo asks for more especially with Montreal's first round pick tonight being the 2nd last (30th OA) .

They probably ask for something Montreal doesn't want to do like making it Suzuki instead of KK or adding Caufield. They might settle for adding Romanov or another 1st round pick.

That's if they decide to take less than they've been asking so far.

2.) 24 Jul 2021 19:36:59
I wouldn't include Romanov or Caufield on ANY trade.

3.) 24 Jul 2021 22:57:26
@Chickenfoot Neither would I if I were in Bergevin's shoes, just saying that's probably what Buffalo would ask for.

Buf trades Jack Eichel to MTL for:


Buf retains 4M in the first season only of this deal.

BUF gets a huge hall that is sellable to the Sabres' fan base. They also get first crack a resigning Tatar and Danault if they fit.

MTL gets a #1 centre NOW, and would still have 11 picks for June's draft. They also have roughly 1M left to add at the deadline.


1.) 04 Mar 2021 21:26:07
How is this a huge haul.

2.) 04 Mar 2021 22:12:38
You can't retain just one year (unless that's changed recently)

3.) 04 Mar 2021 23:49:20
So why would Buffalo trade Eichel for KK and basically a 1st as lower picks perdentage of players don’t make it.
Both other forwards can walk for nothing at end of year.

Your obviously a Mtl fan, but at least bring an offer that’s not laughable.

And you can’t retain salary for only part of the contract!

4.) 05 Mar 2021 00:55:17
Clearly you know very little as you can’t retAin on 1 year also this is awful for Buffalo. Tatar and Danault hold zero value to a rebuilding team.

To Detroit:

1st ('21)
2nd ('22)

To Tampa:


With only a handful of teams with 9M+ in Cap Space, buying Cap Space is going to be expen$ive. Stevie Y probably has a few potential fits on Julian's desk. I don't see Ottawa, Nashville, LA or the Devils making an offer to take that turd of a deal, and Stevie probably knows it.


1.) 09 Dec 2020 21:31:09
Literally any team with enough cap space would take that deal IMO. Probably a handful of teams that would try to make space for that deal even.

OFFER SHEET: Sergachev (8M x 7 Years)

TEAMS: Detroit, LA, Nashville, Florida, and to a lesser extent, Ottawa

COMPENSATION: 1st, 2nd & 3rd Picks in 2021 Draft

- Nab a generational talent
- Tampa can't clear the space for he and Cirelli
- These 3 picks are a steal for a big, talented, young, Cup-winner like Sergachev. The kids is an NHL stud who isn't close to reaching his ceiling.

To the best of my knowledge, these are the only teams who have the space and their "own" picks to offer-sheet him. What a great opportunity for a GM with vision.


1.) 20 Oct 2020 14:14:53
I don’t know if I would call him generational, but a very good player and probably worth that investment.

Detroit would be interesting because yzerman made the Drouin trade to bring Sergachev to Tampa and the wings need a D like him. Add in the rich history of Russians on the RedWings (especially in Yzermans playing time) and it could be a great fit.

Only issue is if Yzerman believes the team will take a step forward as to not give up top 3 pick with that 1st rounder.

2.) 20 Oct 2020 14:51:29
I would think ottawa and Florida are the front runners there. I believe Detroit and l. a. might have a pick worth more than sergachev. Ottawa wants to compete as soon as they can, honestly this would bring them up from bottom team to wow, they only missed playoffs by 15 points.

Florida would look amazing with sergachev. He might be the defensive piece to give Bob his confidence back, then lookout.

Nashville might not want to invest that much in their blue line again.

3.) 20 Oct 2020 15:24:25
Monkeyful - make some good points. I just think With Ottawa, it’s now secret that Melnyk is pretty cheap and he already paying Chabot $8M to be their top LHD. Not sure this is the investment he would make. Florida would be good for him I think. Nice pair with Ekblad.

4.) 20 Oct 2020 15:36:42
If an offer sheet is more than 5 years, they take the total value of the contract offered (56 million in this case) and divide it by 5 to determine the compensation. So a team would be giving up 4 firsts if they offered this contract. Just thought I’d throw that out there. This would still make sense if you just changed the years to 5 or less.

5.) 20 Oct 2020 16:11:20
LMAO you’re the 1st person who I’ve ever heard say Sergechev is better then McDavid either that or you don’t know what a generation is ( 10 year span ) if you didn’t know what a generation is then I feel bad for you. So you really think Sergechev is the best player to Slep into the nhl within the past 5 years? Laughable statement.

6.) 20 Oct 2020 16:21:48
I remember something about that formula but couldn’t find any info to show it. Even the CapFriendly compensation calculator didn’t give that answer so I wondered if it had changed with the new CBA.

7.) 21 Oct 2020 07:50:26
Fire is correct, that offer would be 4 1st round picks since it's averaged out over 5 years.

8.) 21 Oct 2020 16:43:20
FIRE BERGEVIN and THE TRIPLETS: you are correct, I misread the calculator on CapFriendly. With the 5-year thing I'd offer sheet him for 8M x 5 Years, and leave the compensation at a 1st, 2nd and 3rd.

NYLANDER: I think Sergachev is generational, true. At his postion. I don't think anyone is better than McDavid. Feel better, you ol' softy? Now go skate around the perimeter while the men go into the corners to dig out the puck.

9.) 22 Oct 2020 15:00:53
Nylander is an extremely talented perimeter player there is no denying that. Similar to Kessel in that aspect. But Sergechev is not and will never be better then Dahlin, Jones, Eklblad, Hieskanen, ETC. great player but he is not even a top 10 dman of his generation. I’d say he’s on par with a dman like Morrisey.

Coleman is a nice piece. for a contending team. Calgary needs to tear it down and build it up properly. They're neither good nor bad right now, and that's a dangerous place to be.

Or, the Oil sign him to a 7 year deal, and no compensation required.
