That’s NHL trade whiplash. Jack Eichel is a bonafide NHL superstud. He’s an elite skater with vision and one of the best shots in the NHL scoring 36 times with 42 assists in 68 games last year. There isn’t a team in the league who wouldn’t be interested in Jack Eichel because he’s that good and he’s played in the shittiest city for the worst team in the NHL his entire 4-year career so there’s probably more truth to this than Bob wants to admit.
Maybe Eichel loves Kevyn Adams and wants to bury it, maybe the source got cold feet after the tweet went nuclear. Who knows.
Bob knows EVERYTHING and wouldn’t drop a nuke like that unless there was something there so I know it’s not ‘nothing’.
It’s a long way from rumor to tweet when you’re Bob unless it’s about drilling pints at the cottage so I’d lean toward there being a rift in Buffalo between superstar and an NHL franchise that hasn’t done anything right in at LEAST a decade. I love the Idea of Eichel asking for a trade out of Buffalo while calling his shot.
‘I’m a big deal and this town BA-LOWS. Send me to New York City!
That is a power move from a player with barely 4 years in the league, but according to Bob none of that happened which is probably better PR for both parties.

Buffalo is a great city with really good people who love their hockey team and it’s really too bad because your team doesn’t love you back.
Now the Bills are 3-0, It’s all academic so let’s just bury the hatchet and take the Eichel Trade rumors as a warming shot at Sabres management not to screw it up this year or ELSE because that’s how I read these tweets from Bob.
If true, well played by Jack Eichel’s agent.
I like it.
