So really...it's essentially as close as it gets to a lottery pick and with long term injuries to markov, gionta and others underperforming, that is a a dinstinct possibility. So ask yourself, would you rather a spot at a potential first overall pick with a lottery pick, or Derek Roy, UFA in a year and a half? That's essentially the problem. Again, don't blame you, but the habs first round pick is too low to be considered fair value for Roy.
You may end up being right depending on where the Habs pick lands but even if it ended up being #20, I'd rather have that than Eller. That's all I'm saying. That I've never understood the Eller hype.
