Just got some info from Friedman regarding the beef Eichel has with the Sabres.. Eichel wants to get a freaking disk REPLACEMENT in his neck!! WTHeck!
I don't blame the Sabres for resisting it, disk replacement (a mechanical, synthetic disk), especially in the neck is an extremely risky surgery, rarely done except as a last resort for people with chronic pain, usually over 50!! Almost unheard of for an elite pro athlete, in a CONTACT sport!!!

I think Eichel is freaking nuts, must be listening to some witch doctor.
If he's this bad, and contemplating a disk replacement, his future is not looking very good.
I'd stay away from him like radioactive waste.



Eichel wants his own TV special like McDavid.

If he gets that artificial disk, I think he's done, its a last resort move, for old people.. TV special would be cool though..



McDAVID! Oh YEAH Baby!!

Sabres need to be patient. If they do not get a deal they like, then sit on Eichel and allow him to heal to his maximum capacity. Buffalo ultimately holds all of the cards as they have team control. Steal a page from Kenny Holland.

Caveat. If the club thinks Eichel will never be the same player then sell and take what you can get. It is unfortunate, but players are just assets the team needs to manage. Recent history with this organization says this will not end well for the Sabres.

When other teams hear "disk replacement", and consult their medical staff, they'll give him a wide berth, his value will drop pretty low.
