I'm a huge fan of Eller and not a huge fan of Desharnais, but that's just not how you develop players, especially when the team is doing so well and playoffs are approaching. I think there's a better chance Desharnais would be traded when Eller has had more time to improve his offence. I think to acquire Talbot you could get away with trading Pateryn or Ellis and a pick.
I don't completely agree or disagree with your assessment .
MT is actually one of the types of players who can help tremendously in developing young talent.
Everything that happens in the playoffs gets magnified a thousand fold.
If we make the right moves we will not hurt offensively...
I realize the timing may seem strange but I'm seeing DD's line struggling in the plus minus column
Lately. This too will be magnified come playoff time.
We will be looking at a completely different brand of hockey.
I would love to have Max. I was actually speculating on cost.
I would still pull the trigger on that one.
No way in hell Eller would not produce with those two wingers.
But once again what would it cost....
