I agree with Eller but how'd DD a 40 point guy at most? He had 22 pts in 43 gp last year as a rookie. That's 42 in 82 GP. He's on pace for 50 pts this year which is his second full year. He's older, but the facts are there, he produces the points and will surpass 40 pts. Nathan Gerbe is also on pace for 45 pts, so it's not a stretch for DD to attain that. As for Eller, I said i'd choose him, but 'great upside' is a stretch. I see him as a potential Jordan Staal for our team, but if he can become a 60 point 2nd line center i'd be very happy. I don't see first line center in him though.
