Eller will be a two-way 3rd liner with above average offensive skills who can play 2nd line minutes but will never be as good as staal offensively or defensively. He will never be a first liner and he's best suited being a 3rd line stud on a contending team.
Dude regardless of if you said/meant Jordan Staal or "Jordan Staal for us" whichever convoluted way you want to put it, it doesn't change the fact that this IS great upside, plain and simple.
