We don't want "a second liner for a loser team". We are only interested in "a second liner for a quality NHL team."

Seriously, is there anything more disrespectful to say on these boards? "Well, on any other team, he'd be a third-liner, but on YOUR sorry haphazard bunch of losing losers he'd be a second liner so you should pay us more." What the hell kind of argument is that supposed to be?
I wasn't trying to be insulting, but right now on the Habs we already have Desharnais and Plekanec to be our top-2 centres and with Galchenyuk coming Eller might not ever get the chance to be a top-2 centre on our team.

For what it's worth, I definitely think Eller can be a second liner for a quality team, he just needs to be somewhere where he can get that chance like on Columbus.
