Since they apparently try to undervalue him in Montreal you might be able to pressure a cheaper deal through.
I think Lars Eller would fit greatly in Tippets system as he has been around the swedish U20 and SEL. He is a bit less defensively skilled than Frans Nielsen (but most are anyways), but with more offensive potential he has never really been allowed to prove in Montreal. He hasn't really been great when playing wing in Montreal, but maybe with the right line he could develope that as well as an alternative. He could scored 4 goals a night when he was paired with Kostitsyn, but otherwise he never really got quality linemates.
And the asking price?
