Which is a big reason I was so against parking 2.5 million on Prust.

But if they are going to insist on a grinder based line strategy using Eller as King of the Grinders is probably the only way to make it work.

IMO he was brought in to replace AK on the 3rd line, I think Bourque is a better fit on the 3rd line with Eller and Prust, but some ppl rather have AK offensive skill, even though Bourque has outscored him in the past few years.
