Jack Eichel speaks out against Buffalo Sabres after Stanley Cup Win
BY LIAM SEPTEMBER 15, 2023 (3:32 PM)
Wishing to receive a higher-technology neck surgery that the Sabres were unwilling to approve, Eichel's frustrations bubbled over with the organization. After years of failure to build a competitive team in Buffalo, on top of his injury concerns, Eichel was granted a trade to Vegas in 2021. Sabres fans now have since had an utter distaste for Eichel, who seems to particularly enjoy his personal success given the alternative in Buffalo.
In a recent interview with Pierre LeBrun of the Athletic, Eichel had a specific comment seemingly directed towards the Sabres organization and the fans that gave up on him.
Now that Eichel has the pedigree of being a first line centre of a cup-winning team on the back of two extremely successful years in Vegas, his reputation around the league has changed for the better. After being mired in years of poor rosters in Buffalo, maybe fans are finally just getting to see the true Jack Eichel.
