Eller was, quite often I might add, the best forward on a given night, with a team that finished in the upper third of the general standings.
I *kinda* understand what you're saying, but the age difference between McGinn and huberdeau is about 5 years, not two. I think at this point in downie and ellers career we have a pretty good idea of who they are. Eller may score a few more points, but downie brings more grit. Value wise eller>downie. But it isn't by a ton. Definitely not as much as some in this thread believe.

Edit: maybe a 3 team trade with a defender coming to co would work though.
