Analysis: Sabres back at Square 1 in seeking to trade Eichel

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) So much for the Sabres' so-called and celebrated "tank year" in 2014-15, when many fans openly cheered a late-season loss to the Arizona Coyotes to essentially seal Buffalo's last-place finish.

With a patchwork roster of journeymen, minor-leaguers and youngsters, the Sabres were successful in their objective to bottom out as part of a long-term vision to start over and spur a rebuild by drafting a foundational franchise player such as Jack Eichel, who was taken second behind Edmonton's Connor McDavid in 2015.

Six losing seasons, four coaches, two general managers and two last-place finishes later, the Sabres find themselves back at Square 1.
