Regardless of if it’s right or wrong, Jack Eichel has reportedly told the Buffalo Sabres they essentially must decide between him or Dan Bylsma.

In the world of professional sports, you repeatedly hear that no individual is bigger than the team. Regardless, it seems Jack Eichel has decided to put this theory to the test with the Buffalo Sabres.

As reported by WGR 550‘s Paul Hamilton, Eichel has apparently indicated he has no desire to sign a contract extension this summer, if Dan Bylsma remains as coach. In the process, the Sabres’ young superstar has essentially told the organization they must decide between him and Bylsma.

There has been speculation all season, that there was a rift between the younger and older players on the roster, in respect of Bylsma and the system he plays. If this latest report from Hamilton is true, it now sounds like Eichel has put his cards on the table, to have this matter resolved once and for all.

In the process, the 2015 second overall draft pick has theoretically sealed the fate of his current coach. After all, it is no secret the Sabres see Eichel as the long-term face of the franchise.
