Remember the Blues gave away Eller, a first round pick, probably because they saw him as expendable and saw that his up side was limited.
Its very well known that the Blues did not want to give up Eller. Its not their fault Eller plays with the Moen's and Armstrong's of the world.
Yes, I am sure the Blues 2 years after drafting Eller who was 20 saw that he was not going to be effective. Cmon man.
Although I do think Habs could have gotten more not because Eller wasn't good enough but because Halaks value was so high a smart GM would have exploited it. But that is another debate.
