He is winger depth.
Hard to see the logic in an argument that on the Habs, who are 28th and looking at a lottery pick, Andrei Kostitsyn is a depth winger who should play on the 3rd line; when on the Preds, who are in 6th place and a dark horse for the cup, he is a top-six forward with PP time. No matter how you slice that it's baloney.

Eller's a good bet to get the next "attitude" problem on the Habs. Honestly the other 29 GMs must look at Gauthier's moves and just facepalm.
