Varlameov fetched a 13th overall. Eller is worth more than that as he was a 13th overall from two years prior, progressing rapidly. Same potential as any given 13th overall, reduced risk.
Errr....Caps got a 1st and a 2nd for Varlamov who was largely unproven. That's a better haul IMO.
Both Bishop and Varlamov were less proven goalies than Halak.
Eller is progressing but "rapidly"? No, he isn't. He's progressing steadily and I can tell you Gauthier expected him to be more ready than what we have seen thus far.
