According to ESPN’s Kevin Weekes, one massive piece of their offer for Jack Eichel is 23 year old winger Matthew Tkachuk.
They are also throwing in an upcoming first round pick, a former first round pick, and two prospects .
For all asking, my understanding is the @NHLFlames have Tkachuk ( who is a future potential captain) an upcoming 1 Rd pick, a former 1st Rd pick, and 2 prospects in the Eichel sweepstakes with the @BuffaloSabres . @espn @NHLNetwork #HockeyTwitter .

Matthew Tkachuk is in his final year of a 3 year $7,000,000 deal he signed with the Flames. He will be an RFA the sabres have to re-sign during the off-season.
In 358 career NHL games Tkachuk has 114 goals, 170 assists for 284 points and has totaled 363 penalty minutes.
The offer is on the table and the ball is in the Sabres court.
John Vogl, a Buffalo Sabres reporter added that the Sabres are feeling external pressure to get a deal done today.
I hear the Sabres are feeling added external pressure (not grievance related) to get a deal done today.
