Eller, the Blues No. 1 pick (13th overall) in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft, has 6 goals and 20 assists in 28 games in his rookie season.
Great news.

If Junland can keep up his offensive numbers, the Blues are going to have to give him an honest shot at making the team next season. He has paid his dues and I haven't really heard about him complaining about being stuck in the AHL. Even if his defense isn't quite up to snuff yet, the Blues could at least use him as a bottom-pairing PP guy and help him improve his defense along the way.
