lewlewsports: Eichel, Golden Knights, Avalanche, and the Blackhawks

Heightened chatter from Acorn, Golden Knight

Frank Seravalli from Daily Faceoff: There has been speculation that Jack Eichel might file a complaint in the next 10 to 14 days. There had been hope that a deal could have been worked out before going down the complaint route.

Trade talks between the Buffalo Sabers and the Vegas Golden Knights have increased in recent days. The problem for the Golden Knights, who have a slow start, is that Eichel would be out for months after his surgery.

The Mark Stone injury and the $ 9.5 million cap hit are also a question mark. Still unsure of its status and how long it will be out.

A third team may need to get involved to keep part of the salary.

Could the Avs come in acorn?

Mark Kiszla of the Denver Post: The Colorado Avalanche are off to a slow start, and if this continues, could GM Joe Sakic take a bold move? It’s still early in the season with plenty of time to turn things around, but something seems to be missing from this team.

Should the Avalanche take a serious look at Buffalo Sabers center Jack Eichel, however?

One reason for the Avs to consider this is to keep him away from the Vegas Golden Knights. It wouldn’t be an easy thing for the Avs to do with the salary cap and the risk of neck surgery is there, but it could provide a huge boost in the playoffs.

Blackhawks GM options

TSN: Kyle Davidson has been named the Chicago Blackhawks’ interim GM, but his inexperience will lead them to look for an experienced GM, according to Darren Dreger, and there are several potential GMs available.

“Jimmy Rutherford is well rested, he’d rather be president of the hockey department, but would take a GM job if it fits. Jeff Gorton, formerly with the New York Rangers, you also have Ray Shero as a seasoned GM. Not to mention, there will be a long list of people who believe they should be on this candidate list, but that will come in time. “

Arthur Staple: “Nobody asked, but the next two calls from Hawks should be Ed Olczyk for President / Hockey Ops and Jeff Gorton for GM.

There is a lot of work to be done within the organization and in the community. Two people who would help. “
