Absolutely. Like I said on the other thread about him, I can't believe there is so little Eller enthusiasts on this board. I thought he was our most promising player last year. His upside is higher than Pacioretty's, and he's not a one-dimensional player like Max is.

Very hard to predict what our lineup will be in 4 years because of our lack of depth at wings, but I can tell you one thing: Galchenkyuk will form his 1-2 punch with Eller, not with Plekanec/Desharnais/Leblanc. At least one of them will have been traded, most likely Plekanec because of his age.

As for the next 2 years or so, we could expect something like:

Max Pacioretty - David Desharnais - Erik Cole
Lars Eller - Tomas Plekanec - Brian Gionta
Louis Leblanc - Alex Galchenkyuk - Brendan Gallagher

Until we realize Eller is much better at center.
