I wouldn't trade McGinn for ANYTHING right now after seeing what he did when given a consistent opportunity with top 6 talent. Eller does not have the size that McGinn boasts and fast power forwards are very valuable assets.
SJ will look back at that trade and cringe every single time even if McGinn only comes close to what he did after the trade. He paced at 39 goals over 82 games. I would be happy with anything over 20 next year when combined with all of his other tools.
So to each his own
All this sounds fine, but you are aware that Eller is basically the same size and also uses is, right?
But other than that, I agree, to each his own.
