Eller is under contract for the next 2 years at a minimal cap hit, before he becomes a restricted FA. Halak was a restricted FA, and is likely going to get a contract in excess of 5 million per season. Since we signed Gionta, Cammy, and traded for Gomez last year we need to balance out our forward group with affordable players. Eller fits that description while giving us the upside of being a potentially PPG player down the road. He was an extremely valuable commodity in todays NHL when considering contract. A guy who is NHL ready but wont be paid like an NHLer for another few years, but with plenty of upside.
