Can we find some kind of middle ground...? I think DD is shaping up as a future 70 points player. Is this reasonable?

But one thing I know for sure : I'll never, never, NEVER bet against a player who has continually exceeded expectations and who has made an habit of making professional scouts and other "experts" eat crows. While I think those who say DD will get 100 points are over excited, I think those who are tearing him down are making a fundamental mistake.

So among the 2, I think Eller will become the most complete player and the most valuable one. But he may never get DD's offensive numbers.
In the "new" NHL, and in Montreal under Martin: impossible.

A good 50 points + solid play is the most I am expecting from him.
