Well it’s been a long and weird road but according to one insider the Jack Eichel saga is reaching its end and a deal is likely to be made shortly.
Per Darren Dreger of TSN:
Sources say the Eichel saga may be shifting. Ongoing discussions and additional access to Jack Eichel’s medical file has helped teams with trade interest clearly see his situation. Both sides are hopeful something can be worked out soon with one of the clubs in the mix.
It’s a bit strange that the Sabres were trying to trade Eichel, a franchise player who makes $10,000,000 a year without showing his medical records to the teams interested, you’d think that would be mandatory in a deal like this.
The team hottest in pursuit of Eichel is the Calgary Flames, per Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman:
One of the teams that we knew was really big into (acquiring Eichel) was Calgary,” Friedman said. “Calgary really tried. And not once did anybody say to me ‘he wouldn’t go to Calgary.
Now that the medical file is being introduced to teams interest, the Flames are right back in the picture.
It’s expected that the Sabres will make the move within the coming weeks.
