Off the Record: GMs Gasp at ‘Just Crazy’ Price for Eichel | WHN+

NHL trade, Jack Eichel, Washington Capitals

The asking price on the NHL trade market for Buffalo Sabres captain Jack Eichel has gotten to the point where rival NHL executives are questioning how Sabres GM Kevyn Adams is approaching the Eichel sweepstakes.

In this week’s ‘Off The Record,’ a rival NHL executive got specific and vented about Buffalo’s Eichel trade ask. The source described it as ‘just crazy!’

Look for the Arizona Coyotes and St. Louis Blues to mix it up on the NHL trade market. Arizona could do a lot more than deal captain Oliver Ekman-Larsson. However, if they want Eichel too, they will need to acquire a first-round pick, as they have none in next month’s NHL Entry Draft.

The dance has begun.

And, Boston Bruins President Cam Neely raised some eyebrows with his recent praise of former Boston Bruins and current Carolina Hurricanes defenseman Dougie Hamilton. That has some wondering if the Bruins would enter the expanding NHL trade market for Hamilton, who can become an unrestricted free agent on July 28.
