I wasn't objective.
Desharnais is almost 4 years older than Eller. How about a little patience and let the kid develop. He's improved dramatically this season and setting himself up for a breakout season next year. Every facet of his game has improved since last season.

Desharnais meanwhile at 25 years old is having a breakout season. But lets not lose sight of the fact that he's 3+ years older than Eller.

Don't listen to him, he is COMPLETELY left field. Eller is not only NOT a defensive liability, but he has completely shut down the likes of Datsyuk, Malkin and Gaborik over the last 3 weeks. His defensive game has evelated almost Krys Draper level. As for his offense, well, you mentionned it, he's 22 years old. He has never had an offensive role and pp time for multiple games in a row, simply because Plekanec is payed 5 mil a season and Desharnais is a smallish, strictly offensive center, so Eller has to play 3rd line center role by default, like Jordan Staal (to a lesser extent, of course).

Habs simply cannot afford to lose Eller, he's not getting traded unless we're getting a better Lars Eller. If one is getting traded, it's Plekanec for a solid prospect and/or 1st round pick.

ok, regardless the point of the thread is if Eller can return a 1st, he can, an early teen pick. If you don't like it don't worry, it probably won't happen.

Can't say but it's certainly much less than for Eller. The guy just scored more goals than Plekanec and is the new ''future'' of the club.

Anyway, you guys should offer some middle of the board picks to Habs...all they dream about anyway is making playoffs in what should be a great chance of going low to pick high (especially with this years first 5 choices).

What if the habs put Eller and their 2012 1st DP on the line (Potential top 10)?? What would be the return? Would Huberdeau or a shot at Grigorenko possible, assuming the trade happend at draft day?

I've never been a huge fan of Eller, but wow some of the posts in here. Worst case scenario, he becomes a solid 2-way 3rd line center, which he already is. Eller won't be a bust, he might not live up to expectations offensively, but definitely not a bust. Dude still has a bright future ahead of him.

Eller, Pac, Price, Subban, Beaulieu, Leblanc are not likely to be traded they are our the main pieces of our rebuild.

Same thing for our 1st pick.

Pleks would be a great fit with the Blackhawks, but they would only be interested in acquiring him if Morrison doesn't work out.

Plekanec could command B.Schenn, which Eller wouldn't.

Eller is definitely worth a top 10 pick ... hes going to get 60 points next year. Book it.

I've heard same talks about Higgins and such, but Gainey/Gauthier didn't stick well to those sayings. So as much as we know, Gauthier is still in charge and can potentially do what ever he wants for now.

Next year...that's another story.
