I'd say they are pretty close in value because Downie brings this element of nasty physicality that Eller can only DREAM of having as a part of his game.

That said, I wouldn't trade Downie for Eller straight up. We already have a version of Lars Eller who is even better: Ryan O'Reilly.
since when do 3rd line centers score 53 points? and what time machine are you using to know how 24 y.o center will top out?
