he blew on the Sabres like every other Sabres player though. god knows in a good environment how he'd do. i guess we'll see

That's true, even Hall was invisible and then exploded once he got to Boston.

Sounds like Ristolainen is going to Philly

Glad that the early chatter about him possibly coming here was only that...chatter.

Meh. Not too worried about it. He’s not very good.

Philly giving up their 13th overall pick this year and a second-rounder in 2023 in that deal.  That just seems...really really good for the Sabres.  And...well...really really bad for the Flyers.  Fitz might not have done much just yet, but at least he hasn't made any WTF moves.

I would be legit beside myself if we paid this price for Risto.

I mean, who knows maybe he'll be better outside of Buffalo but.. expensive gamble.  Christ.

Eichel is the one that gives me pause. I could see the Rags getting him

 

If they massively overpay the way Philly just did, I'm ok with it.  If I'm Buffalo, I don't make that deal without 1 of Laf or Kakko being involved (with Laf my preference by a mile).

If Risto sets the market, then Eichel is worth 5 first round picks.

The funny thing is, if it had been the Flyer's first for Risto straight up, I STILL wouldn't have liked it, but I would've understood it a little more.  The fact that they gave that up PLUS two other pieces...man they must really think he's got something.

That is insanely bad by Philly, the 1st and second and an NHL player?! How do they even balance that in their minds?

 

I'm guessing there's some sort of extension in-place - not that it helps much in my mind.  But I could see Fletcher at least justifying it to himself that way.

"No no it's not 13th + a 2nd for a rental, we've got him for another 5 years".

If a sh!t show like Ana can be in on Eichel then why not us?

Cause the Rangers have players who wants to go there constantly. They don't have to be as cautious with their assets as we have to

I mean we could definitely be in on it, but do you want us paying the price?

I don't want Hughes / Nico / Smith going anywhere.

Well, agreed but do you think that gets it done?  Especially with the Rangers sniffing around?

I mean the Rangers offer has to be 16OA + Laf/Kakko/Kratsov + ....

Or I guess, one would think.  Maybe not.

Anaheim has to be looking to loose Drysdale/Zegras to make that deal happen. No way it is going down without one or both of them and the 3OA+. I don't see how 25 year old Jack Eichel puts them any closer to winning a cup than losing two of, prob top 10 or 15, young guys in the league.

EDIT: 24 years old

I’d be waiting for Fitz in the parking lot of the Rock with a crowbar if we gave that up for Ristolainen.
