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.
Eller is bigger and better defensively...i will give you that, but in no way, shape or form does he have as much offensive skill and hockey sense as Derrick Brassard.
It would be a project for project swap. Both players have upside but have to a certain degree fallen out of favour with their current clubs. I maintain that Brassard has the potential to give us more on the top 2 lines than Eller could.
