How About Sam Reinhart Wearing The Winged Wheel?

06/19/2021 at 10:08am EDT

from Luke Fox of Sportsnet,

Eichel hogs the headlines in Buffalo, and rightly so.

But Sam Reinhart’s trade value may never be higher, and this summer seems ripe for a trade.

Kevyn Adams should take advantage of Reinhart’s abnormally high 19.2 shooting percentage.

The 25-year-old Reinhart ($5.2 million cap hit), who is coming off his most productive campaign (25 goals and 40 points in 54 games), could take the Sabres to arbitration, get a one-year raise and walk as a UFA in 2022.

In need of top-six forwards, the Devils, Canucks, Blue Jackets, Kings and Red Wings are among the teams who could benefit from Reinhart’s offence.

Reinhart’s faceoff work and two-way game are improving, but he’s still a guy who starts 60 per cent of his shifts in the O-zone.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
