Eller for sure... I doubt he ever scores 30 goals or hits 60 points. He'll be a good 3rd line defensive center. Leblanc mmm perhaps.
I'm probably the only one who sees this but I think Eller has a higher ceilling than Pacioretty (I know username makes me look biaised). Two way players tend to take longer (see Plekanec, Zetterberg, Kesler ...)
How many would settle for one cup year followed by 5 years of being at the basement of the confrence?
I would take it.
My St. Louis Cardinals will be the perfect example. They will probably lose Albert Pujols to free agency. Tony LaRussa, the brilliant manager of the Cards has retired.
I would be surprised if the Cards make the playoff next season.
But damn........what a hell of a playoff ride it was watching the Cardinals beat all of the favored teams and win the World Series. I will give up the next 5 years just for having experienced one of the best World Series wins ever.
Beats the hell out our terminal losing year after year after year.
i got a feeling its leblanc instead of pacioretty (pg can't be that stupid to trade max). pretty weird from the get go with the leblanc calling up. and now jacques only playing him 7-8 mins a game (perhaps limited his mistakes so he looks good in the limited icetime he gets).
