BTW, Chiarelli also dealt away an NHL goalie for a prospect he believed in and landed Rask who four years later is now their starter.
we got more than enough for halak

eller was a top prospect ,we havent used him at all , cause we are waiting for dd to turn into St louis one day

goalies are worth zilch in trades look at history over the years my friend

Eller is a legit 50-60 player a 2 way solid player if played properly

Halak simply doesnt have the frame to be a 65 game goalie , injury prone
and small

let me ask you this question , would Philadelphia give up their #1 pick for Reimer ?

would the Sabres give you Grigorenko for Reimer who has shown flashes of being solid ? I doubt it very much my friend

Eller was a legit maybe not a blue chipper but a future NHL legit top 6 when the trade was made , thats what we got for a 20 game hero
