A potential 50 point two way center for a potentially top 10 goalie in the NHL is highway robbery.
And if you say the Luongo trade I will subsequently laugh in your face.
I'm not Gauthier's biggest fan, but I think people grasped onto any pathetic straw they could to attack him with.
Halak was sold at his peak value, we got more in a trade than anybody else has gotten for a goalie in decades, we got the young blue chip offensive center prospect with size we desperately needed and a decent throw in as well, and we kept the better goalie.
Finally: I think Eller is a potential 60 point center, reaching 70 points in a career year.
