On the Buffalo Sabres and Jack Eichel …
Paul Hamilton of WGR 550: Sabres GM Tim Murray is meeting with ownership (the Pegula’s) today in Florida.
Have been reports for most the season that Jack Eichel is not happy with coach Dan Bylsma or his system.
Inside sources have said that Eichel isn’t interested in signing a contract extension this offseason with the Buffalo Sabres if Bylsma is still the coach.
John Vogl of the Buffalo News: Paul Hamilton’s report doesn’t bode well for coach Dan Bylsma as GM Tim Murray has made it clear that Jack Eichel is his guy.
“He showed some nights that he’s an absolute top, top player in this league, and that’s exciting going forward,” Murray said last week while affirming his desire to lock up the center. “I assume that July 1 we’ll get a call from his agent and start that. If I don’t by July 1, I’ll call him on July 2 and start that.”
Bylsma has three year left on his contract.
