To be Honest as much as I like Eller, I still feel we should have gotten more out of that situation ; having 2 legit long term starting goalies. I imagined that price ''could'' become better (he already showed how good he can be and its great... he's now the better of the two, no doubt) but I thought we'd have the ''neal'' or ''staal'' or ''something special'' that would still tip the balance in our favor if we had traded price.
At the same time though, one has to remember that even then, the market for goalies was a tough one for sellers. As for the trade returns, we were winning that trade until Hitchcock and his Midas touch arrived, Halak wasn't doing too hot in St. Louis.

And he has yet to surpass 60 games played in a season...
