I want DD traded. With him scoring more, I think it will be easier now then before. I don't think it'll be too hard to trade him. No idea what the return would look like.

I'm really hoping we don't trade Chuck/Plex/Eller in order to keep DD. But that will be the most likely scenario.

Btw, Brière should be on that list too. He needs to go as well.

DD is better but Eller has better value? Please explain this logic.

I dont understand when he says that DD is better but I do know that Eller has better value. Eller will fetch a good return as for DD there would be salary retention involved IMO.

With Therrien going nowhere, we might as well free Eller. I just hope we get picks back for him, because I'd rather have Timmins managing our assets than Bergevin.

...I didn't include Briere because he was never part of the plan at centre moving forward anyways...

If DD was better than Eller than his value on the market would be more.

The reason Eller would have more value is because he is better now and in the future.

Trade Eller for a legit winger. I'm very disappointed with his progression so far, he's not even on pace for 40 pts.

DD has proven that he's got good chemistry with Pacioretty. Let them play together for the rest of their lives.

Plekanec should stay, when he'll get older, he can be converted to a checking line center.

Galchenyuk is our future #1 center.

Long term

Pacioretty-DD-XXX
XXX-Plekanec-XXX

Trade any centre but Galchenyuk in a package for a top 6 scoring right winger.

We have a need that we can't fill in the short term other than via trading or chancing it that we might somehow convince a UFA.

Desharnais is on pace for 41..
Eller for 30.

Desharnais plays with Gallagher/Pacioretty with 2.21 PP time per game
Eller plays with Prust/Bourque with 1.20 PP time per game.

It's not unreasonable to think that in the same situations that Eller would match or out do DD's output.

Eller is really misused by Therrien and lost his confidence. Trade DD for whoever.

Pacioretty - Galchenyuk - xxxx
xxxx - Plekanec - Gallagher
Bournival - Eller - xxxxx
Moen - White - Weise

As much as I would love for DD to be traded, it will be Eller.

Eller will be packaged up for a top 6 scoring winger. I have a feeling he is gone by the draft.

That's the biggest misconception on this board.

I am sure Ryan White should be the #1 centre on the team too if he was given the opportunities.

Trade Eller for a big 2-way physical center with untapped offensive potential.

Agreed......100%
Also don't forget about Briere, he's technically C.

Lets trade Eller and put Briere at his spot.

DD-Plekanec-Briere. Scary.

DD should be the one to go.

It will probably be Eller.
