More Lebrun on #TSN690: #Habs Lars Eller is drawing a lot of trade interest across the league; wouldn't be surprised if he's moved this year
Can anyone confirm what Lebrun said?

Problem is Bergevin wouldn't want to give him the contract he wants, especially after the Subban thing.

If this is true, he's probably being dangled for O'Reilly. Not sure if I love that idea considering how much money ROR wants.

MB already mentioned Lars had a lot of interest before the season started. Is this just a retread or are teams still calling? If so, why would we want to trade him if he's what we need now and in the future? A large Center. It took years to finally get one.

I'll be pissed if he's moved before being given a proper chance.

All depends on what comes back, but yeah - would be kind of frustrating to see him go having never gotten a real shot.

Can't really see Bergevin trading Eller right now unless it's for another centre which would wind up being a lateral move. I mean why would a team trade a centre who is significantly better than Eller for Eller. I personally am not keen on seeing Eller traded as he really seems to be finding his game, but if he was traded, I would like to see a big tough crease clearing Dman, but again, who would fill Eller's spot?

If they're going to trade him, they're making the same mistake old management made. His value is not what it could be.

So would I, but I doubt O'reilly would sign here to play 4th line minutes.

I'd be pissed. He's been working his ass off and he hasn't even gotten a fair chance yet. He's always had awful linemates. His value probably isn't very high right now and I doubt we'd get anything substantial back. We've been needing a big centre for years and now that we finally have one, we pair him up with plugs and might be shipping him off in the near future. It's always the same **** with this organization.

Very good point. I'd be reluctant to trade Eller since we have even given him the opportunity to show his full potential. He can that big two-way centre we've been waiting for years. He's been arguably our best player these past 4-5 games despite playing with the team's worst wingers and getting very few minutes.

It all depends the return, but Eller isn't at his highest value right now and it could be that his play in the long-run may outweigh his return.

Actually, if the return is a young 2-way D-Men with size, I'd jump on the occasion.

Besides, doesn't Eller still have this year an another on his deal?

Eller doesn't have enough value right now to get back one of those worth having.

Not the time to trade Lars.

I was all for trading Halak when the time was right. Now is not the time to trade Lars. We're gonna get the equivalent of Aaron Palushaj for him, and Lars is worth much, much more.

I for one would rather have Eller than a 5 million dollar 2nd line centre.

Not quite sure.

I mean... He has value if NHL teams have pro scouts. Which they do.

(But I agree that if you have something like Ryan McDonagh in mind, then obviously, Eller is not enough. And will never be enough.)

Ergo, he was very dominant against the weakest opposition possible.


can I know what is so special about O'Reilly that everyone keeps mentioning him? Looking at his stats; he's not bad at all. Why would Colorado want to swap him for Eller? Why would we?

Spot on.. why trade him at this point? If you want to trade him, best to do it when he is on a roll and will give you better value.

Hell noooo , i love lars eller, even as a 3rd liner ; i'd still keep him. Anyways, if this has something to do with Ryan O'reilly; what type of player is he ? Because i've never seen him play.
