The trade for Eller was one heck of a trade, imo. The goalie market has never been that hot and Van got basically what we got in return for our goalies, they got a 9th or so pick and we got a player who was the previous year drafted at 10th or something.

Gauthier's problem was leadership and man management, his hockey trades were as fine as could be given the circumstances he was in (handcuffed with the Gainey contracts and with a coach who was living in 1996)
