A monster trade offer involving Jack Eichel has just been revealed by Elliotte Friedman

As you know, we saw a huge transaction a few months ago when Jack Eichel went from the Buffalo Sabres to the Vegas Golden Knights.

In return the Sabres finally got their hands on : Peyton Krebs, Alex Tuch, a first round pick in 2022 and a third round pick in 2023.

A monster deal and a major return, no surprise.

Before the trade, we knew the asking price was huge, and now that the dust has settled, more and more information is flowing and circulating.

Most notably, Sportsnet's renowned Elliotte Friedman revealed a little bombshell.

"If you're still interested, Friedman, on TJMS yesterday, said the Anaheim Ducks were concerned about upcoming surgery for Eichel. That's what complicated the final settlement of the deal."

Friedman added that the Ducks were extremely interested despite everything to acquire Eichel, and if it were not for this famous upcoming surgery, a monster trade could have been concluded between Anaheim and Buffalo.

The offer that was on the table, again according to the Sportsnet insider ? Strap on your hat.

The Sabres' demand for Jack Eichel in Anaheim was: Trevor Zegras, Jamie Drysdale and two first round picks.

Anaheim wasn't going to make the trade, not under those conditions, and they look brilliant right now.

Would you take Zegras or Eichel? The question arises and says a lot about how this could have turned out for the Ducks.

Sometimes trades that don't happen can be big wins.

- Zegras, 21, has 55 points (20 goals) in 68 games this season. He makes less than $1 million.

- Drysdale, 20, has 31 pts (4 goals) in 74 games this season. He earns less than $1 million and is a very promising defenseman.

- Eichel, 25, has 20 points (11 goals) in 26 games this season. He earns $10 million.
