i'd be willing to bet that by 28-29, Eller is as good as/or better than Pleks... and I am a huge fan of Pleks.

let's not forget that Pleks didn't crack the habs lineup until he was 24, and then he gradually progressed into the 60-70pt player we now have, thanks largely to having an excellent work ethic.

Eller is more physically gifted (bigger, stronger frame, not quite as fast but just as good a skater), all indications are that he similarly has a killer work ethic, and will have that much more NHL experience under his belt by his mid-late 20's.
