Not interested from the Habs' POV. Stastny is likely an upgrade on Plekanec (but it's hard to quantify just how much of one - it might not be much), but you pay for that upgrade on the cap hit, and I wouldn't also include Eller... Eller is important to the Habs, because without a kick-ass stud centerman (and Statsny wouldn't be one either), the Habs need a strong committee, and Eller has shown well both in present tense and in terms of still having ample upside. I could see Eller being as good as Plekanec in the not-too-distant future. Well, that's a hopeful/optimistic upside, anyway. But he has the tools. I'd rather have Plekanec and Eller than Stastny for our team.
