I don't think McMichael is a 3c right now, especially on a contending team. He certainly didn't have the production last year to warrant 3c (I know he was a rookie so that is okay), but this team is trying to contend, and contending teams need very solid, confident, and established players down the middle. I just think Caps fans are overhyping McMichael, thinking he needs to be in the 3c spot only because he is young. But contending teams don't necessarily worry about "developing their youth".
Side note, reports say Eller has hit highs in every speed, strength and conditioning tests. Apparently, he looks really good. So why are we trading him when we don't need to and when McMichael hasn't come close to proving himself...? I am actually higher on Protas than McMichael right now...
I don't want to get rid of Eller, but I think he's the first out if Backy comes out. We'll need the space.
I think McM could be 2C right now, he's that good. He averaged like 13th forward time last season and was arguably out best possession player. He was a beast. Put him on the 2nd line full time and I be he cooks.
