I think he can be a top 6 center, but I feel like he'll be used for more of a shutdown role. For some reason, Eller reminds me of a more offensive Bonk(obviously different players, but size wise and role wise, that's who he reminds me of). Eller plays quite the puck possession game and is quite good at it despite being under 200 pounds.
Like you said, people forget that it takes more than one year to develop. I expect Eller to keep learning, he's still has a ways to go, but I like where he currently is.
Or maybe a Plekanec type of game? I would be very happy with that, 55-65 points, and be defensively responsible.
