You keep bringing up the same stats but refuse to answer the real question here... do you honestly believe Eller would have produced the same amount of points with Patches and Cole. If the answer i yes... then that is where we disagree. No stats can prove either of our opinions right or wrong.
I think we both agree that Eller brings more to the table overall, but what I'm saying is DD brings more to the habs playing those extra minutes on the PP, playing those extra minutes in the offensive zone than Eller would
and btw I still don't buy that DD played against weaker opposition than Eller... It was Pleks line against the opponents top line... not Ellers. And it was the oppositions top pairings that would play against the habs top 6, not the bottom pairing.
But what does it really change if he would have out produced DD or not?
What's important is, moving forward, could Eller out produce DD in a top 6 role, and which of the two is the better center/winger.
But if you made a Ak-Eller-Cole line, I'm convinced they would have dominated just as much, if not more.
That's irrelevant though, AK is no longer here.
I disagree with you saying DD brings more to the PP table for the simple fact that we haven't seen Eller used on the PP, let alone with the best wingers+dmen. So, how do you know if Eller couldn't do better on the PP? You don't. It's not like he was tried there and failed, we haven't seen him there at all.
And for the match ups, it's not something for you to buy, it's a fact.
