Sunday Notes: Hilarious Jost-Compher video, Sidney Crosby returns, Jack Eichel trade chatter



Jack Eichel, nhl trade, buffalo sabres

Good Sunday to you all. Crisp, fall day, lots of colored leaves. My kind of weather and scenery. Let’s do some hockey notes/links, starting with a hilarious video put out by the Avs featuring Tyson Jost and J.T. Compher walking through a haunted house, and some Jack Eichel trade buzz.

Superstreak Bonus!
  • Tyson Jost’s laughter in this video makes you laugh along as well. I’m sure it will become a heavy meme item (Avalanche YouTube channel)
  • Calgary Hockey Now: Vegas is the front runner for Jack Eichel, and our Steve Macfarlane is all over the NHL trade chatter from the Calgary side. It’s a STEEP cost for a team that just finished a historic road trip. Here’s what Calgary can afford to give
  • Sportsnet: The NHLPA will have a reckoning with itself and head Donald Fehr on Monday. At issue is Fehr’s management of the Kyle Beach / Chicago Blackhawks scandal and if Fehr’s inaction was negligence. 
  • San Jose: One of the strangest days in Sharks history, seven players and two coaches entered COVID protocol. 
  • Washington: I know you don’t like the Washington Capitals. But our Sammi Silber did a pretty spectacular piece with rookie Hendrix Lapierre. The kid made the team at 19-years-old, and you can’t wipe the smile off his face.

  • The Vancouver Canucks are 3-5 and nobody is too happy about it (Vancouver Hockey Now)
  • Sidney Crosby returned to action yesterday, but somehow the Penguins lost at home to the understaffed Devils (Pittsburgh Hockey Now)

Jack Eichel is an elite player from a skill point of view. No doubt. However, the skill isn’t all. Eichel isn’t a good teammate. He has no leadership and is very focused on himself and isn’t focused on the team. For a team that wants to win Stanley Cup, Jack Eichel is a barrier to achieve the objective. In that sense, I hope that Eichel will result at Vegas. Eichel would modify completely the dynamic of Vegas and for the worse. This would mean that Vegas would become an opponent easier for the Avs. If a deal happens, I hope… Read more »

The last summer, I thought that there was a chance to get Marc-Andre Fleury as goalie. I don’t have nothing against Francouz or Johansson. In contrast, it takes Fleury before the trade deadline as backup at Kuemper. I repeat, IT TAKES FLEURY BEFORE THE TRADE DEADLINE. Kuemper is a fragile goalie. He is prone to injury.
