Would all those who mocked me for saying Desharnais could make it in the NHL stand up

And FWIW, re: big productive center, I really think it's worth sitting on Eller to see where he'll be in ~2 years offensively. A lot of young talent is going to be filtering into the habs at that point, some big contracts will be relieved, and maybe, just maybe, we'll have our big productive center for cheap. I think he's got it in him to be like Pleks, just bigger, stronger, and more prolific offensively.
Eller has the same iron will that Pleks has, but way more technical skill offensively. There are some small fundamental things that hold Pleks back more than his size: his stick handling and puck control for one, and his shot for two. Eller has a laser, however, he needs to work on his release, and his puck control is probably the best on the team.
I think next year we'll see Eller start to emerge offensively.
