Agreed. But the Habs would have to give up more than Eller for ROR. They need defencemen bad, but who on the team has value and is expendable? Diaz. Is that enough? I doubt it, but who knows, maybe O'Reilly has asked out.

He's only been on the ice 7:40 after two periods... after Therrien mentionned he's been playing well and likes his compete level. Pretty difficult situation for him to prove his worth to the team.

no surprise Eller is drawing interest... he's a very good young player, who is already very solid defensively and clearly has some very untapped offensive upside.

Why the habs/Therrien refuse to give him a legit shot to play a top-6 role is beyond me.

If he does get moved, it had better be for what appears to most as a huge overpayment in our favor... otherwise, he'll be yet another guy we get a minimal return for who then goes on to excel for another team.

MB better not screw this one up!

I would not trade Eller at all.

End of story. I'd rather trade DD + Cole for a Pylon then Eller. Sorry I see him have a huge amount of potential, but being misused a lot. On a team like say Detroit he'd easily pot 50 pts because he'd get ice time and quality line mates.

Somewhat amusingly, Eller is frequently brought up on the Nucks board of late. Dunno if those two teams could work something out though.

You do realize there are some good to elite players making that or more playing as second line centres, yes? One such example: Ryan Kesler. Richards, Duchene and Staal also come to mind.

I've never been a Eller fan if he is traded I don't mind, he does have some talent but hasn't been able to play with any consistancy, he is one of those guys who might go somewhere else and play well but he will never play well with montreal, one of those guys that needs a change of scenery

He was never given good, consistent wingers either.

Eller for Gormley.

I've always felt Gormley would make a good Hab. Partner him with Tinordi, a good 3rd pairing and eventually moving them up to 2nd pairing. Subban + whoever would be top pairing when Markov is done.

It is more he is adapting to Therrien's vision. He keeps attempting to force Eller into a more prototypical shutdown role and that is simply not his game. If Eller is traded, I suspect the Habs will seek big forwards, likely prospect(s) - depends on who. We absolutely do not need defense of any kind.

They should trade DD instead. He's the 60 pts player.. Should have some value.

Guys, relax. I heard the segment on Melnick's show: Melnick asked him what it would take from a Habs perspective to get ROR. LeBrun didn't really answer, but went on the Eller angle, saying teams are calling about Eller and are interested and that in the right deal, Eller could be had.

All it says is that Eller is a valued commodity, but not an untouchable. Not exactly ground breaking news here.

It wasn't ''Bergevin is looking to trade him''.
