Right now i'm far from convinced that DD has a longterm future with the Habs. I'm not ready to give Galchenyuk top 2 line responsibilities and i dont think Eller has what it takes to play on the top 2 lines.
Brassard is already 25 and is a fringe top 6 guy making 3.2 mil a year. Unless he has some epiphany and suddenly becomes a much better player, he is not a guy I'd give much for in a trade. The type of player you can get on the UFA market.

I don't agree he is more skilled and has more upside than Eller offensively PLUS Eller is bigger and better defensively...plus much better cap hit and 2 years younger.
