The only thing it tells us is that Eller had mostly defensive duties and he did quite well, while Desharnais had offensive duties and he did quite well.

This Desharnais/Eller debate is so annoying.

Do you realize that with the stats you use, you could also argue that given Moen (1,6) had way tougher opponents than Cole (-0.017), we shouldn't think Moen can't be more than a 3rd line player and that Cole's success was only due to him being placed in a more offensive situation than Cole?
