The big news about Jack Eichel is official

It's done, Jack Eichel is no longer the captain of the Buffalo Sabres, which indicates that he should never play another game with this organization. I remind you that this rumor was spread all over the web during the day on Wednesday.

"I talked to Jack two days ago, I talked to the team yesterday and I addressed it, Jack Eichel is no longer the captain of the Buffalo Sabres. From our perspective, the captain is the heartbeat of your team, and we're in a situation where we felt we had to make that decision," said Kevyn Adams.

So Adams and the Sabres were supposed to make a decision on the captain, but he's stalling on another issue - getting Eichel out of Buffalo. We all know the love affair is over between the two parties.

Hey, taking the "C" off a player doesn't happen every day. Quickly, I think of Patrick Marleau, Joe Thornton and Dustin Brown, who had this letter of nobility taken away once upon a time.

All in all, it's absolutely true that the captain of a hockey team remains the heart of the locker room, so this was the direction to take for the Sabres.
