I really respect Danny Dubé and his insights on the Habs. In his daily comment yesterday, he really took Lars Eller to task. He singled out his selfishness and immaturity in that he blatantly refused to pass the puck to AK on numerous occasions causing offsides and turnovers.

Usually, Dubé's comments are bang on and I was surprised. He's adament that AK should play with Plekanec to form a better scoring second line.

I've always liked AK and Eller together but maybe Dube's right that the chemistry isn't as good as I thought it was. Either way, Gomez has to be removed as a right winger on the 2nd line and Blunden really isn't a 3rd line player, although I'd like to see him with White on the 4th line.
It's a good observation and its true. They do have chemistry but like Dube said, there is still immaturity.

I notice Elller barely ever passes on a 2 on 1 either it seems.

I thought Eller was a passer and playmaker who had to work on his shot when he first came into the league but it looks like he is shoot first kind of guy right now.
