I am pretty sure the Habs were not expecting that TWO rookies would make it. + The arrival of Prust (much needed) and Armstrong (less needed)
Eller and Leblanc are the ones who have been most screwed up by this situation.
I agree Eller is a third line center. The problem is not Galchenyuk, it is Plekanec and Desharnais.
Galchenyuk will displace one of the top two centers next year, and Eller has the best profile out of all four of them to be a third line center.
Hopefully he and the Habs can wait around until Galchenyuk can handle the role of top 2 center quickly enough.
