Lars Eller for Steve Downie

Ellar would give Colorado some scoring depth on the wing.he also can fill in at center till the big guns come in.Downie will add much need grit up front for the habs

Are we trying to get smaller or something?

Either way.. Eller is a building block for us, and broke out last year mostly playing on the 3rd line. He's not for sale.

Not only is this trade bad for Montreal, why would Colorado need another center...?

Habs would be one crucial step closer to being the first NHL team since 1927, to have a Top-9 with no player above 5'11...

Easy no from the Avs.


Downie hold a tonne of value to us. a Top 6 guy who brings in the grittiness that he brings is a rare thing to find. Without him in our lineup last year our Top 6 was pretty soft.


We also really have no need for another Center(Even if Eller can play wing as well).


All our "big gun" C's are already brought in and playing, so that comment makes zero sense.

Agreed Habs get bent over. They could definitely use some sandpaper in the forward group but this is an overpay imo..

First its Eller not Ellar.... why would Montreal trade the best 3rd line center in the NHL for a guy like Downie? make no sense at all from MTL POV

1. Eller is not needed in Colorado...they need D.
2. Eller is LOADS better and more valuable then Downie.

When you have 1967 in your user name, you're a closeted Leafs fan.

So many people over emphasize the fact that MTL needs bigger tougher guys. Every team has a plan on how their team is built. MTL doesn't NEED to add size and grit, if they are successful building the team like they have then why change it? They don't need to change their whole team philosophy to win.

A guy like downie is more valuable to the avs than a guy like eller, but I think I'd have to do this deal if only to flip eller to someone else for defense.

It'd push Stastny to the fourth line where he would be more comfortable playing with the type of winger he's more used to. We would need to add one of our surplus defensemen, but it'd be worth it.

Pass. We'll keep Downie, thanks. We're sure as hell not giving him up for another center.

Boston haven't been a problem for the Habs. We do fine against them in the regular season and were one bounce away from beating them the year they won the cup. The Habs true weakness is constantly losing to non-playoff and lower seeded teams. We just don't bring it vs non-contenders.
