You don't really trade for a #1 center. You either draft them/develop them yourself or you sign one in FA. There won't be many #1's available for trade plus we probably don't have the assets.
Meanwhile Eller is a big center (6'2") signed to a cap-friendly contract throughout next year that can win faceoffs and play. He cycles pretty well and can control the play in the offensive zone and defend in his own. Perfect player for Hartley
Eller is a perfect example of what we need, we have the offense on the wings. We need a centre who can control the puck down low and win ****ing FOs!
