On the eve of the Sabres season opener vs Montreal, Sabre fans were given a gift seemingly out of nowhere, when it was announced that Jack Eichel and the Sabres have agreed to a long term deal that will make him the fifth highest player in the NHL!   The highlights:

  • Reportedly, Eichel told his agent to get a deal done, while the agent wanted him to wait and get more money.
  • The 8 year extension worth $80 million deal sounds like it will be great for both the player and team, leaving the Sabres with enough cap room to be able to add players as needed to improve them, and with Eichel getting long term security and more money as the years go on.
