Jack Eichel Is All Done In Buffalo Per Sabres Beat Writer

The Buffalo Sabres gave us plenty to talk about on Spittin' Chiclets this season. From an epic streak to a fired coach to the heart-warming story of career minor league goalie, we spent more time on them than your standard non-playoff team. But this latest topic has to leave a pit in the stomach of many Buffalo fans. 

Captain Jack Eichel and the organization disagree over how to move forward with the franchise center's herniated disk in his neck. "There's been a bit of a disconnect from the organization a bit and myself. It's been tough at times," Eichel said in his exit interview with members of the media on Monday. "Right now, I think for me the most important thing is just trying to get healthy and figure out a way to be available to play hockey next year wherever that might be."

The Athletic's John Vogl, who is a very good Sabres beat writer, minced no words with his informed opinion...

(The Athletic) "Buffalo will need a new captain. The bridge between Eichel and the Sabres is engulfed in flames, and it's hard to imagine it'll be salvaged. Eichel has been a fitness freak since his teen years, and he's furious the team is telling him what he can and can't do with his body. The trust is shattered. And that's just one angle. Add in six seasons without even a sniff of the playoffs and Eichel is clearly ready to move on. He's as good as gone."

As per custom, we discussed it on Spittin' Chiclets...

We also had Chris Nilan on to talk about his career and a local outlet picked up on one of his stories...

Take a look/listen. It'll be the best 3+ hours of your week.
