Desharnais signed a cheaper deal last year and played with even worse players. And outproduced Eller (well... ppg-wise).

This said, i expected Eller to get something like 1.7., and anything over 2 would have been a wee bit expansive, considering RFA status. 1.325? Awesome.
Pouliot and Darche that year were, strangely, a productive pair that year. Even Halpern got 11 goals that season. But still, you could see DD's mad skillz then.

That said, Eller was certainly "slow" in his own right when it came to his shooting and passing; he was starting to get better last year though, but not up there yet.
