Good players (yes, even Gomez) at times but not the cream of the league.

I'd argue that it's certainly worth Eller if we have a reasonable shot at getting Radulov back in the NHL. To be blunt, Eller alone for that chance would be a bargain.
Just because Eller may never be a top 10 scorer doesn't make him garbage. Also, I'm not convinced Radulov is much of a team player he is all about his contract, his stats and getting attention for himself.
