Golden Knights fans have a mix of emotions after the club acquired Jack Eichel from the Sabres on Thursday as part of a package that sent Alex Tuch and Peyton Krebs to Buffalo.
Here is a sample of the various reactions:
Unless the surgery goes really bad, the #VegasBorn is going to have the best PP in hockey for the next 5 years. Step aside Oilers.

#VegasBorn should keep Eichel on IR for the remainder of the season IMO. Dealing with the cap in the postseason will be much more manageable

The #VegasBorn got Mark Stone and Jack Eichel for
Conditional 1st round pick
2nd round pick
2nd round pick
Conditional 3rd round pick
And frankly, it’s all worth it.

#VegasBorn won this trade goin away…
In my 48yrs of being a sportsfan, I've never seen a more incompetent handling of an Elite player then the way the Sabres did with Eichel
It's beyond words

I have no idea how the Knights get salary compliant, but I’m excited to have one of the best players on the planet in uniform.
I’m happy today, then I’ll be sad when more of my favorite players get moved, then I’ll be happy again when Eichel is lifting the Cup.#VegasBorn

This is hilarious considering Eichel is a -69 in his career , everyone talking about how great he is but is one dimensional

I guess “win now” means next season when everyone’s healthy and when the teams rolling 1 line because they can’t afford the other 3.
