30-33 points is his realistic ceiling next year unless one of Plekanec or Gomez goes down for a large part of the season and a regular powerplay shift opens up for him. 35 points on even strength is about average for a top six player that gets 14 minutes of ES time.

1.8 points per 60 minutes ES is a top-six forward pace. Eller would get at most 13 ES minutes per game ice time on the third line.

1.8points/60min X 13min/game X 82 games = ~32 points in a full season
