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
I agree that we haven't given Eller a real chance. I think we could've gotten more but like I said it was a prospect we apparently believed in so I have no issue with it.

I sincerely hope that we play Eller with Galchenyuk going forward at least to see if it clicks.

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
I think there's a huge difference between Halak (who was coming off a dream season and Ken Dryden like playoff run shutting down Ovechkin, Crosby and Malkin) and James Reimer.

And no Reimer is not worth a number one pick in my opinion. Not in this draft anyway.
