There is yet no word on the scheduled meeting between Buffalo Sabres captain Jack Eichel and Sabres management, or if the meeting has yet taken place. Based on all indicators, the two sides have some serious issues to figure out to keep Eichel, one of the premier centers in the league, off the NHL trade market.
There is rampant speculation the Sabres will select their new coach with Eichel in mind. We have one name to watch on that front, and he’s very familiar to the Metro Division and Boston fans.
However, Off The Record has been reporting for a few months the two sides are headed for divorce, but the coach could be the Hail Mary to keep the former second-overall pick.
The Colorado Avalanche could begin their offseason as early as late Thursday night. The offseason focus in Denver will immediately switch to budding superstar defenseman Cale Makar and his second NHL contract. How much bank can Makar get?
And NHL owners have held power since they instituted the salary cap in 2005, but could the current NHL player empowerment create player-coordinated movement, so the NHL resembles the NBA?
