Eller is of little interest, Holland doesn't really add anything, Armstrong is a sad joke, we could get a 3rd for DMac/Boll regardless, and we have little or no reason to trade 1sts this year.

Not a good proposal at all.

"Decent third-line player" is precisely what we don't need, and the odds of Eller helping right away are vanishingly small. We need forwards who can shoot the puck and score goals, and last I checked that's not Eller's game.

Remember - when you're a hockey fan, it's not "reckless driving", it's "good forechecking".

Thanks, Howson, for cleaning up MacLean's toxic waste. Welcome, Kekalainen; let's get good things built!
