DD, last year in his rookie year, was at .50pts\game, while Eller this year, his 2nd season, is at .25pts\game. And DD was playing 3rd and 4th line last year.

Again, for the wingers excuse, Cole was going nowhere before playing with David. Same thing with Max. He produces more while playing with DD. So, how does the credit goes to them.

Eller could be 3 times bigger and twice the skill as Desharnais, if at the end he cant put points on scoreboard, hes not 2nd line player.

With the bad start of the season, JM does not have time to test anything, he goes with what he knows. And what he knows is DD produces and Eller does not.

And yes I agree, Eller is more talented than DD. Maybe next year. Eller will be ahead but not now.

A lot were not happy about Latendresse yet he was producing more than eller and was playing with Lapierre and kostopoulos without pp time.
I'm not sure how you can compare production when Desharnais sees more PP time than anyone else and Eller gets none. DD also preys on teams third lines and third pairings while Eller gets the tough shutdown assignments against other teams first and second lines.
