Sabres, Eichel agree to eight-year, $80M extension
« on: October 03, 2017, 07:08:48 PM »

Sounds like an Eichel extension is just about done. Mckenzie saying it's in the 10 per range.

So, you know, that seems pretty relevant to Auston.

Yup. I think we have a pretty clear range of where his contract will land.

Tarasenko for 7.5 is unreal value.

The Penguins are very lucky Crosby signed his deal when he did.

Given that, I guess hoping Matthews pulls a Crosby and signs for an annual salary based on his jersey number is a bit unrealistic at this point...

Oh, I don't know. He could sign for 34 million per.

Well, he is 3.4 times as awesome as Eichel.

This seems like a perfectly fine deal for Eichel.

He hasn't shown $10M per season value yet but I am sure he will. I like the contract. I could see Eichel being a top 5 player in the league really soon. Bodes well for future Leaf contracts. I also think the cap should go way up with the recent strengthening of the $CAD. I don't know how the cap wouldn't go up. $CAD hasn't been this strong for 2 years.

I wonder if the C comes along with this contract. I love Eichel as a player, but he doesn't exactly scream captain material to me. Granted he's still young so he can grow into that.

That would be a conflict of interest, it'd be hard for him to be both GM, Captain, and Coach.

The Sabres are probably paying him in stock options, so as part-owner Eichel can approve it.

No, he can't. :P
