I never "put him at Lang's level". I said he could potentially be as good as soon as this year. Meaning by the end of the year he could already be playing better than Lang did then. I'm not trying to say he will be or that he's better than Lang in his prime. Just saying he has the potential to go far and if he does improve/develop greatly by years end he could be as good if not better.

For me Eller has a high ceiling, he could be another Plekanec for us with more size and different strengths. I still can't get over that one game where it basically took the entire bruins line to strip him of the puck Don't get me wrong I wanted us to keep Lang, but there's no doubt in my mind Eller could be better as soon as this year. He could also flop entirely. Time will tell.
