Great news. We desperately need at least one of them back right away. O'Byrne can be protected and used, but we're just not going to be competitive with both Markov and Hamr missing for any length of time.

As for Eller, if he does start the season on the 4th line it's not the end of the world, as long as he's playing enough minutes to develop and get used to the league without getting physically destroyed the way Pacioretty has been the last couple of years. Hell send him down if need be. I'm hoping he'll be the third line center by Christmas, whatever role he starts out with.

PG made a dangerous move trading Halak for a guy who's so raw. I like the look of Eller and hope he'll turn into a major asset for the team, but right now it's just not realistic to expect him to be a major contributor. He's just not ready to do that yet.
