Both Eichel and Reinhart suggested in their exit interviews that they wouldn't be opposed to moving on.

I can't believe how disastrous things have become in Buffalo. At least the Bills are good!

Those Eichel comments are uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuugly. Basically he wanted to have surgery on his neck and the Buffalo team doctors decided against it.

Yeah, it's coming to an end this offseason. I'd say to Adams, just get the best package you possibly can, even if it means handing your franchise player to the New York Rangers. Rumors persist that the Kings are going to put together a package and conceivably have the cap room and prospects/young players to make it work, but I don't see them parting ways with Byfield when the kid just effin' got there.

There are more centers on this team than an Quinn-era Leafs roster. At some point they're gonna have to divest themselves of a couple, just didn't necessarily think it'd be Reinhart and Eichel.

Curious to see how Reinhart will do in a new city. He's been the model of consistency since entering the league, basically a guaranteed 20+ goals, but for a second overall there's that weight of needing to do more. Bennett immediately hit another level leaving Calgary, and I think Reinhart might have untapped upside too.

He's Arby's eligible this offseason, which makes him a likely trade candidate. Trade him for a younger version of himself (Glass?) and try again.

LA, SJ and LV will be all over Eichel.

I think the Kings can avoid giving up Byfield if they sacrifice Turcotte, Kupari, Anderson-Dolan etc.
Sharks have nothing to give (Merkley and Wiesblatt isn't enough) but you have to think they'll try.
Vegas always gets their man. Pretty much everyone but Stone and Pietrangelo should be considered up for grabs. Glass, Krebs, Hague?
Rangers maybe? Kakko+ is attractive.
