This article should shed some light on the matter

Hint: Desharnais' minutes weren't "easier" than Eller's.
Well, only players on Montreal's ever-changing 4th line (from Nokes, Staubitz, Engqvist, Darche, Dumont, Palushaj, Blunden, Geoffrion) ranked lower in Corsi Relative Quality of Competition (well, Gomez and Leblanc are right there, too), so yeah... they kinda were; especially when you factor in the Corsi Relative quality of teammates (linemates) and see what Eller was working with while facing relatively better players. Also notice on the chart from the6thsens.com showing Eller well into the "shutdown" quadrant, while the Desharnais line borders between "2-way" and "sheltered".
