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.
How is "great upside" a stretch but then Jordan Staal somehow <> "great upside"? You basically contradict yourself. If he pans out as another Jordan Staal that IS great upside.
