I think all the skills are there, he just needs a little finish to be a start.

He`s 22, he`s got the time to develop that finish.

I really feel like he`s close to breaking out. Remember Plekanec was 24 and it took him 1 1/2 NHL seasons before he broke out in the second half of the 06-07 season.

I really think Eller is gonna break out either later this year or early next season.

He's got a good wrist shot and release... the day he starts using it more, is the day the breakout comes as it will open up the ice for him, give him more room out there.

He could use some better wingers to play with too.
