Mcdavid to oilers does nothing for the org or the league. Had bettman rigged that thing mcdavid would be in arizona or buffalo right now. Dont blame buffalo fans for being pissed but the conspiracy shit is just that..poop.I talked to my uncle in Buffalo tonight, he is absolutely FUMING about the draft and ranted for about 15 minutes. They wanted McDavid BAD.
Especially mad about Bettman and how it's all done behind closed doors. Even bitching about how in the 70's the Sabres almost got screwed out of there first round when they announced number 1 instead of 11 which was the Sabres number. He then rattled off the entire roster of the Buffalo Bison, the AHL farm team of the Rangers back in the day.
Your uncle is going to love eichell. There is no better consolation prize. Eichell is bad ass and actually may be the best fit for Buffalo in the long run. Big...power....hell of a shot...great skater for a big kid. I would be excited.
