FORMER SABRES PLAYER: ''EICHEL IS NO SIDNEY CROSBY''

SEP 23, 2021  (15H57)      T. TADI
«I spoke to Jack two days ago, I spoke to the team yesterday and addressed this, Jack Eichel is no longer the captain of the Buffalo Sabres," said Adams to the assembled media. "From our perspective, the captain is your heartbeat of your team, and we are in a situation where we felt we needed to make that decision.»

To be honest, it's hard to argue with Adams here. Eichel doesn't want to stay in Buffalo, so how can he be captain? With the rest of the squad gearing up for a crucial season, removing him makes perfect sense.

Here's what former teammate Jean-Sebastien Dea (now with the Montreal Canadiens) had to say about Eichel:

"All I can tell you is that he's no Sidney Crosby. You see the difference in leaders when you walk into a room with Sidney Crosby. No matter who you are, your name, your pick rank, he'll take care of you. He will talk to you as if he were talking to a partisan, a young person he meets in the street."

Eichel has some serious leadership problems to fix.
