Lars Eller

Just curious, what would the value of Lars Eller's RFA rights if Montreal were to trade them.

Thanks.

Not as high as it once was, as a top prospect.

He's the next Plekanec. He won't be traded.

IMO I see him as a 3rd liner on a good team and a 2nd liner on a real bad team (Columbus) currently. He has shown promise just not near enough consistency. If he continues the improvement that he made between this year and the year previous he will be a solid second line player.

He does seem fairly similar so far. Hopefully he shows more offensive upside. Plekanec gets his 20g per year but with the amount of chances he sees, he should be closer to 30 every year.

Columbus has Brassard and Johansen i really think he might be a #3 on Columbus as he would on most teams.

Bruin fan so must be right...interesting considering he doubled his goal output from a year ago and should easily be in the 20-25 range as a 23 y.o this year

In another season or two he'll be ready to step into Pleks position.
Right now he's a top 3rd liner but with a few more yrs under his belt he'll be the type of player that a contender would love to have as their 2nd line center.

He might be indeed, but seeing as Eller has an extra year in the NHL, and since he did better this past year, I imagine Eller would slide in as number 2 this year to give Johansen another year to develop, then CLB could evaluate and go from there.

Which Bruins fan are you talking about? I took that into consideration.

Eller needs to take the next step and show that he can be a 2nd C. He'll need to make his linemates produce regardless of who they are. Otherwise, he'll stay as a #3 C with a few little flashes.

As for his value, it isn't as high as it was as a prospect because back then his upside was a top 6. Now he still has that upside, but the chances of reaching it has diminished somewhat.

His value is nowhere near as high as his potential.

Doubt he's going anywhere.

His value is higher now that he's shown he can play in the NHL, be good defensively, be strong on the puck, and produce when given offensive minutes (which he wasn't).

This.
The talent is there , he just need more time and better linemates. Imo he will be a perfect second line center

One of the Habs biggest weaknesses is the lack of size + skill down the middle, Eller has progress slowly but he's shown good improvement so trading him now would be a bad idea especially for a club that should be focused on building around their young talent not trading it away.

Couldn't have said it any better. He's got the skill and if he improves on his aggressiveness (seems unlikely) and consistency (will come with experience) he'd be a pretty good 2nd line center.

Eller is a great 3rd line centre, but a weak 2nd line centre.

He's only available in my mind in a package for an upgrade somewhere.

I'm not 100% convinced he'll be a perfect 2nd line center. I believe he will, but it wouldn't shock me if he just never took that extra "step". I'd say I'm 80% confident that what you're saying is correct.

Sometimes the things that you think will come together for a player just never do.

I am however 100% certain he'll be at the very least a great 2 way 3rd line centerman.

That's just arguing semantics on my part though

I'd be absolutely shocked if Eller was dealt, now or anytime soon.

I'm really looking forward to seeing waht he does next year with a full offseason to train.

Kinda excited about the habs adding some top 6 depth and having a 3rd line of

Bourque-Eller-Moen

Lots of size and speed there...

But I also wouldn't mind seeing

Bourque-Eller-Palushaj

Lots of speed and size and Palushaj is a pretty gifted playmaker.

I think I'd actaully prefer that!

Nice to see you've determined his career arc already.

Who cares that he's only been in North America for 3 seasons right?

He'll obviously never be anything better than a weak 2nd line centre

I would want an overpayment for him, young, big, scored 16 goals playing with mostly 4th liners and saw barely any power play time in his second year at the NHL level, he will eventually be a 20-25 goal scorer that plays a good amount of PK minutes.

Give him better linemates and a stable line and he will be a very solid second line center.
