Eller is the more realistic option if anyone is moved. Which I doubt they will be. Eller is bigger and cheaper and has played really well this year. He finally looks motivated.
just call up Leblanc..."OOOHHH Look, french hockey player! Shiny...OHHHH" and while the talking heads at RDS/TVA are all patting themselves on the back for another great francophone conquest of the NHL....you trade Desharnais for ROR and just find some kind of tenuous francophone connection (grandmother performed orally on Duplessis or some such nonsense) to placate them, which will be easy as they are still on their high from the Leblanc call-up
