<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>sabres89</b></div><div>I think marner is really good, but theres no way i would pay that for him. Thats a ton of assets to pay for a winger, a winger who makes 11 million dollars, that can walk away in 3 years. We are better off keeping olofsson, two promising prospects, and the 2 late firsts, plus the 6 or so million in cap space. And before this turns into a "well then why do you think eichel deserves that" argument- a franchise center under contract for 5yx10 is far more valuable than a top line winger under contract for 3yx11.</div></div>

I don't disagree what you both are saying. I wasn't sure what the value was for Marner so I just overpaid, but I think he can fit into the timeline because he is still young (24), by the time his contract is up, the team <em>should</em> be good, and it gives the team a veteran to help along their young core of centers. I agree that $11m is a lot to pay for a winger, but he is a complete player and with him and someone like Tuch, it gives you a pair of young veterans that are still in their prime when the rest of the young core is ready.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Forbesy</b></div><div>It's not asinine man, there is a reason only a few teams can take on eichel, its the cap and his 10mill with his injury and the fact he wants out! that combination of things drive down his value 5x because it's a organization crusher if u get it wrong. Eichel is a great player, no denying that, but its such a complicated situation that to assume an organization is gonna hand over a lafienre or Byfield or zegras + for that type of risk is not gonna happen. I just don't see it honestly, for buffalo's sake i hope they are made whole, but its gonna take a miracle</div></div>

I can confidently say that most Sabres fans and those in the media realize that the return for Eichel wouldn't be as high as it would be if he was completely healthy, but other fan bases (not putting the takes of Ducks, Kings, Wild, etc. fans on you) need to realize that he is still an elite player and to get those guys you have to give up something. I will admit when all of this drama of him getting moved started, I was expecting Lafrenierre, Byfield, Zegras, etc. as the main pieces to be included, but that has certainly changed as of late. The Sabres simply won't move him if the return isn't there.

I think they're determined to not repeat the O'Reilly trade where they just took a bunch of pieces that really had no value. I also don't think the "Sabres are looking for the equivalent of four firsts" thing is true either, but I think there will be a first involved, an A prospect, B prospect, and most likely a roster player to make the cap work. I'm sure Buffalo can add things to get perhaps two A prospects (perhaps Turcotte and Vilardi in LA or Rossi and Boldy in MIN), but it also depends for teams that are win-now. The Ducks aren't so giving up Zegras doesn't make sense, but the Kings think their window is still open and they have a great pipeline, so they may be more willing to send guys like Vilardi and Kayilev and still have Turcotte and Byfield. Again, the medical stuff is important, but the Sabres won't just give up Eichel because he wants out and what he makes. Guys like him don't become available all that often and there is no guarantee any of these prospects develop as they are projected or draft pick status indicates.
