I don't doubt Ellers upside. But if he does break out, I do think that means he ends up on the wing. I'd like to see him play with DD to be honest, as DD did wonders for Pacioretty...

I just think Desharnais' game translates better to the wing and Eller is a much better neutral zone puck carrier.
Ha, just posted something similar above.

Though I see DD as a pure centerman, a guy who can make his linemates better. Ellers size/skill package translates better to the wing IMO.
