Paul: Eichel is not the only one who despises playing for Bylsma

Following his report Tuesday morning about Jack Eichel having no desire to sign an extension with the Sabres if Dan Bylsma remains the head coach, our own Paul Hamilton joined Schopp and the Bulldog. 

"It's been well documented, there's no that (Eichel) and Dan Bylsma are not on the same page...And I want to stress he is not the only one, there are other people in that room that despise playing for Dan Bylsma. Quite a few of them."

"Just because (Eichel) has no desire to sign an extension this summer, what are his options after next year? He could go to Europe, or be offer sheeted, but the Sabres will match any offer sheet. His options are very limited."

"If they start winning, I don't think (Eichel) will be unhappy with Bylsma. His main focus is winning. If Bylsma is still the coach, they are going to have to sit down and figure this out, and I'm sure they will."

"We were doing the pregame interview in Pittsburgh with Bylsma, and Malkin walked by. Bylsma said 'Evgeni how are ya?' (Malkin) never looked at him, never said a word, just kept walking."
