Some people here who still think we should have Desharnais on our first line while questioning if Eller is a number 2 center really make me laugh. Eller is a number 2 center and easily capable of putting up 50 points with decent linemates and pp time. If Therrien keeps playing him on the third line most of the time he´ll never convince everyone. Talking about a linemate excuse is ridiculous btw. Other than Crosby and a couple of others very few players in this league can produce on their own. That gets even tougher when you´re almost never on the PP. I can only imagine how bad DD would look without Pacioretty and PP time...

Question of the day: How many players named Staal does this league still need to stop people spelling them Stall?

It´s so simple when it comes to giving Galchenyuk a chance to show what he can do as a centre. DD needs to go.

DD needs to be traded first and unfortunately we probably will have to wait one more year for that to happen.

Then we still would have Pleks, Eller, Bournival and Malhotra at centre. Crane is completely right about Desharnais. I also think there´s no way Galchenyuk would put up less points next season than DD, playing constantly with Pacioretty and another of our three best wingers...

I can only agree. It makes no sense and it just feels wrong.

Big, big loss but Liverpool´s squad will be better next season. With Can, Sterling, Marković, Coutinho and Lallana there´s a lot of creativity. As long as Sturridge stays fit and a good CB as well as a LB is coming in this team overall might be even better.

Completely agree. I´d also take Kopitar over Bergeron and Giroux.

I also like Gorges and he was underrated by many but either Josh or Emelin had to be traded. We had absolutely no balance between LD and RD. Bergevin had to fix that problem and he did well. It was a mistake not to bring a RD with experience in last summer though. Emelin often sucked on the right, now he´ll probably be a decent number five on the left. Gilbert is a nice addition and overall the D looks better and more balanced. Markov - Subban Beaulieu - Gilbert Emelin - Weaver Tinordi - Pateryn/Nygren could be a very good D. Not having Murray and Bouillon around, will help a lot too. Overall: - no more Emelin on the right - more icetime for Beaulieu and Tinordi - a better balanced D is a big step forward despite losing a decent and valuable player.

Yeah, trade Eller and keep Desharnais on the first line. Ridiculous.
