Eller is close to us in value as Staal was to PIT. Obviously he is a lite version ie. little bit shorter, and doesn't quite have his scoring pedigree but he is an elite third liner and with him gone so are our chances at running three strong scoring lines. He's not going to return a heck of a lot and will break out sooner or later, so there's no point in trading him. Not interested in a first rounder for him + some patchwork.
