Should Lars Eller play in the AHL???

We've seen what it's done for Jason Spezza and others....I truly believe that Lars graduated a year too early and this is his opportunity...thoughts???

I don't think so. I think he knows how to play amongst men and that he's developing just fine in his role. He thrives on challenges IMO, so being at the NHL level has been good for him. Increased experience and we'll see quick returns. Also remember that Spezza was supposed to take on a "save the franchise" role. I think in his case, JM's mandate for him was great. Of course Murray benefitted from it and JM got blamed.

If you want him to go through waivers and get picked up, then go right on ahead.

Illogical thread.

if theres a lockout in the NHL,can teams assign players to the AHL woudlnt worrying about other teams picking them up or does the 1way/2way contracts remain the same with a lockout ?

I didn't think he'd have to go through waivers...I understand this is his second contract but the same can be said for Jeff Skinners and Jordan Eberle...I'll check on that

They are still on their ELC. Eller is waiver eligible as he's had 3 years in the pros.

Top line minutes in Europe will help his maturity and technical aspect of his game, no need for the AHL

Did he graduate a year too early? Yes.

Is it too late to remedy that? Yes.

Does that mean his development is screwed and he won't improve? No.

Or, you know, Sweden. Like where he played before going to the AHL.

Maybe he can rejoin Frolunda and force them to play Collberg with him.

Hopefully he could convince them to actually give Collberg icetime

They aren't accepting locked out NHLers in the SEL.

Then most likely KHL.But even they have put restrictions on how many locked out NHLers can come over. Eller would rip the Danish league a new *******.

Isn't Eller still Frolunda property? Like an rfa or something?

Possibly, but he doesn't have a contract there. He has one in the NHL, therefore the SEL would not allow him to come over during a lockout.

I guess we'll have to see..
Sucks if he'd have to play in the Fel/Danish league because of restrictions

Anyone know the SM-Liiga lockout policy? Eller would be a great fit in Finland for a year.

The unfortunate reality for the Habs is that this lockout is perhaps good for us. I'd argue more of our best players on our team are young and not yet into their primes so a lockout only gets them further to their prime. Some may think that it will screw their development which could be true but if they play in good substitute leagues perhaps it will be sufficient. Obviously, everyone would prefer them playing but the Habs' future looks better than its present so we emerge from a lockout stronger i think.
