Carrie Coon hopes audiences can 'escape into' eerie marriage drama The Nest

  Carrie Coon hopes audiences can 'escape into' eerie marriage drama The Nest Carrie Coon talked to EW about her new marriage drama 'The Nest,' starring her and Jude Law as a couple who relocate to England in the 1980s. Can you talk more about that — how much do you draw on your stage experience for a film like this? When the camera is set so far away from the actors, as it is in Sean's visual vocabulary for this particular film, you do often feel like you're on a stage; the camera is seeing a lot of your body. And when you're on stage you can't hide yourself from anyone, so every physical choice you make is part of the storytelling.

Eichel scored a goal and an assist, while Benoit Pouliot and Evander Kane also tallied goals. After scoring just one goal in three of their last four games, they created several chances on the rush and The Sabres will visit Little Caesars Arena for the first time to play the Detroit Red Wings on Friday night.

Jack Eichel has not asked to be traded and is preparing to play for the Buffalo Sabres next season, his agent said Monday. "I hear that (trade talk) a lot," Eichel ' s agent Peter Fish told reporter Bob McKenzie. " Jack wants to win, he's frustrated (not winning) but, no, he doesn't want out.

When a franchise struggles for a long period of time and changes its general manager, installing someone with little front office experience, you can assume that the rest of the league takes flight like vultures to try and pick the roster clean of any talent. That’s exactly what seems to have happened in Buffalo when the Sabres made the move to fire Jason Botterill and hire Kevyn Adams as GM.

Bob McKenzie of TSN tweets that several teams, including the New York Rangers, called on the availability of Jack Eichel, though none of those conversations resulted in “trade traction” with Adams and the Sabres. McKenzie also makes sure to point out that neither the Sabres or Eichel himself expressed any desire to part ways. In fact, just the opposite appears to be true at the moment.

Key Restricted Free AgentsF Pierre-Luc Dubois – Getting Dubois, 22, locked up long-term is the core objective of the Blue Jackets’ off-season. Over the three seasons of his entry-level contract, Dubois totaled 158 points in 234 games, including a 61-point campaign in 2018-19 and a 57-point pace this season.

Buffalo Sabres star center Jack Eichel suffered a high ankle sprain during practice Wednesday and Buffalo Sabres general manager Tim Murray said Eichel is looking at a six- to eight-week recovery Tom Martin of WIVB noted that the whole team surrounded the center after he went down during the

Maybe Eichel was upset at narrowly missing a million performance bonus. Maybe he was miffed about the Sabres ’ PR staff smartly asking him to meet the But let’ s face it: If Jack wants Bylsma gone, Bylsma is gone. He’ s winning that battle every time, with ownership and management and fans.

Ty Anderson of 98.5 The Sports Hub in Boston tweets that he was told the Bruins were also one of the teams speaking with the Sabres regarding Eichel, though again these talks don’t seem to have gone anywhere.

It’s easy to imagine why other general managers will continue to poke at the Sabres on the status of Eichel. Not only is the 23-year-old center one of the best players in the NHL coming off an incredible 36-goal, 78-point campaign, but he’s also a $10M ticket on a team that hasn’t played a postseason game since 2011 and is reportedly looking at working under a drastically reduced internal salary cap due to recent financial restrictions.

If Buffalo is going to turn things around, it’s hard to imagine it would be without Eichel leading the charge. The young forward is a true franchise talent who now has 337 points in 354 career games, despite often playing with an underwhelming roster. Even at that $10M cap hit he likely represents excess value for the team, unlike some of his high-priced teammates. (Jeff Skinner, who carries a $9M cap hit through 2026-27, scored just 23 points this season.)

All that said, Eichel has been quite clear in the past about his desire to win. His agent Peter Fish even re-upped that stance with McKenzie, explaining that the star center doesn’t want out but is frustrated with the team’s results so far. If the Sabres can’t turn things around, this won’t be the last time that teams are calling about his availability or his name pops up in trade rumors.
