No.

Just no. Our most reliable center? The core of our Defensive game?! One of our longest-lined up offensive veteran?!!?

Eller for Brassard ? NO from the Habs. Brassard has shown no signs of being more then a 15 goal guy in the nhl.

Eller is 2 years younger and therefore two years cheaper.
Brassard makes 3 times what Eller makes. it the Habs that already have the better deal between the two players.

I didnt say now, probably after next season. Eller might be fully ready to be the number 3 shut down center and AGally will be ready to be number 1 center.

Pleks ain't leaving. he's one of the better two-way centers in this league.

Wouldn't mind having him on the Sens. Not sure what Montreal would want from him from Ottawa though. I get the impression that he's not really available to us.

Maybe something around a guy like Greening? He would bolster our 3rd line for sure right now.

Zibanejad - Turris - Alfredsson
Michalek - Da Costa - Silfverberg
Regin/O'Brien - Eller - Condra
Daugavins/O'Brien - Smith - Neil

EDIT: Withdrawn upon further review and feedback.

I had a proposal I was working on but couldn't manage to finish the justification for (I generally refuse to create proposal threads unless I can explain why BOTH teams would take it). That was as follows:

To Montreal:
Derick Brassard
David Savard

To Columbus:
Lars Eller
Erik Cole
2nd round pick (CBJ's choice on draft day)

Fell down in that I didn't know if Savard would actually be useful to Montreal (he's got size, but he's not particularly physical), and I couldn't come up with a scenario in which substituting someone else would be acceptable to the CBJ, or MTL. (Unless y'all would take Dalton Prout instead - he fits the template a lot better, but has notably less upside.)

Food for thought at this point, really.

If the goal is to build, trading Plekanec makes sense. He's a #1 on some teams, and a #2 on just about anyone's roster. He could land quality help on the blue line.

Eller has the tools to be a bigger Plekanec. To me, that's his ceiling and he'll reach it somewhere.

Those thinking Desharnais has the inside track because he's French haven't looked at a Canadiens roster much in the last 20 years.

O'Reilly, not really interested in the guy. He's never been a big point producer. I think he's peaked. He certainly isn't the $5 million player he thinks he is. Bergevin stood his ground with Subban and got him to take the two year bridge deal. O'Reilly doesn't seem interested in that, and Marc isn't about to trade for him and sign him to a deal he wouldn't give Subban. What's more, O'Reilly isn't the type of player Montreal needs. He doesn't make them bigger. He doesn't make them harder to play. He doesn't up the skill level beyond where it is now. He doesn't displace centers 1-3.

More than anything, Montreal needs a guy who can win face offs with some regularity. 28th in the league isn't going to cut it.

Dont move Eller. I actually believe he's as strong on the puck as he never have been before. He has 5 pts in 11 games and he's stuck on the 4th line for a simple reason right now: he simply cant play on the wing. Injuries happen and he's going to get his opportunity.

Beside, with Moen on his side (and Armstrong who's i dont like as a player, it's not a typical 4th line, they are on the ice for defensive match-ups, even with a 1 goal-lead and the ends of game. The Galchenyuk line is stricly on offensive line right now imo, so that line actually is very important. He's doing a fine job.

Dont move him, the untapped potential is there.

From the hawks:

Stalberg
Pirri/McNeill

From Habs:
Eller
4th round pick (if McNeill is second player from Chicago)

My armchair GM proposal

I'd be really pissed if he's moved and Desharnais is still around.

I do like David Savard but Brassard doesn't solve the problem, we would still be stuck with too many center and with a spot on the top 2 line empty with the loss of Cole.

i didn't know it was common to hit one's peak at the ripe age of 22.

anyway, we don't have what the Avs would want in return.

and Yann Sauve as added value...a big, mobile, occasionally physical blueliner prospect with francophone tendencies.


And i know there are a lot of Canucks fans who wouldn't even be willing to move Gaunce. And Gillis very well may feel the same, with the premium on size and toughness of late.
not at all interested in that offer for habs

Don't trade Lars Eller. He'll be the real deal.

A Derick Brassard will be eaten alive by the Montreal media and fans in no time.

The Jackets need more potential top 6 forwards. But I don't see why the Habs would trade him or if the CBJ have anything to give up. Maybe David Savard considering how well Cody Goloubef has done.
I was thinking the same thing.

With all due respect, that is hideous. I'm not sold at all on Savard's NHL upside (and where do we put him? We have 8 D on our roster as it is) and the ship is sailing on Brassard ever showing high-end potential - kind of like what Eller might turn into, only he costs $3.2 million dollars.

So why are we adding in the guy who scored 35 goals last year and the 2nd round pick?

I don't see the Habs actively looking to move Eller. But that said, in any potential deal for a significant addition to bolster the Habs' lineup, it's pretty natural that Eller's name would come up. He's underutilized at the moment in Montreal, but still young, shows good signs of having untapped potential, has decent size, good contract, etc. He's an easy choice for an opposing team to ask for in any deal. And losing him also wouldn't cripple the Habs either.

So yeah, if the Habs decide to go after a bigger name player, then I would automatically assume Eller would be involved as one component of such a deal. You have to give to get. Eller's good, but if it improves the Habs, moveable.

If Columbus is trading for Lars one of those 3 first round picks would be mandatory.

he's spoiled us with his defensive awareness. anyone who thinks he can be replaced will regret their words very quickly if he gets hurt or traded.

i highly doubt he gets traded, anyway.
