BREAKING: Jack Eichel’s agent respond to the MAJOR trade rumor involving his client.

Major rumor today as WGR sport 550 sports radio is reporting this: 

Inside sources have told me that Eichel has no desire to sign a contract extension this summer if Bylsma remains the coach.

Players like him don’t want to waste their career in a losing environment. Who will leave? Bylsma or Eichel? That was the question we asked this morning. The story just broke the Internet this morning. Jach Eichel’s agent had to respond to the MAJOR rumor involving his client. Here’s what he had to say to John Vogel, Buffalo Sabres insiders and to the Buffalo News who also reported the rumor this morning.

“They are ridiculous,” Jack Eichel’s agent, Peter Fish, on the report. “This whole situation is very misunderstood."

Keep in mind that Tim Murray said this during the press conference held at the end of the season: 

I made a promise to him that I would do the best that I could to make the team around him better and that we will be a long-term playoff team.”

Will a simple promise be enough to keep him with the team? Players like him don’t want to waste their career in a losing environment. Who will leave? Bylsma or Eichel?
