I agree we'll have a great 3rd line, I just don't think we are going to have 9 players in the 50+ point range like people are suggesting. For DD and Ak to get to 50 points, its probably going to mean other players get injured. I think 40-50 points for them is way more realistic than 50+ points.
What do you think Eller will put up next year? If Eller-AK-DD start putting up a tonne of points, it will attract a tougher shut down competition for them.
Sophomore slumps usually come with players who break out being given a bigger role and put against tougher competition, in situations that they are not used to. Eller should not be facing this type of opposition this year and we should see a progression in his game.
