I see him having more upside than McGinn, Downie, Mueller, Jones and Hejduk. Hejduk because he's close to retirement but he had a great career, and Mueller because at this point his injury woes would make me want to steer away from him big time even though he does have 1st line skills, so in this way a higher upside than Eller.
Anyhow, I believe this makes it close to 2/3.
I've watched Habs games before and have never been impressed by Eller. He plays far to undersized for my liking, and I don't see anything that makes me think he will even break out significantly offensively. I don't think he will ever be more than a third liner on most teams.
In my opinion McGinn, Downie, and Jones have had more success than Eller and seem to have more of a combination of skill and drive than Eller does.
