I would, most likely. It's a fairly close swap. Eller has better offensive upside and isn't as good defensively, but still has a solid two-way game which will improve, as he's only 23. He's 6'2, very strong, plays physical, decent shot blocker. No idea why Montreal would make that swap. I'd do it on paper. During the course of the season, I'd be more hesitant as Eller's not likely to provide a lot more THIS year and will probably weaken the PK a little while disrupting the lockerroom and team dynamic further, by removing another character guy like Boyle from a team that's already missing a few.
