It's not so much a knock on him though because M Koivu is an elite talent. I think Eller will be vital to the habs success in the future because of his two-way play more so than his untapped offensive potential

No harm in projecting a players top level... but it's all speculation. A lot of this board is. That's the fun part
I don't think 60 pt is necessarily a ceiling. I think Eller could regularly put up around 55pts as a 2nd line center. But we need to see more of him in an offensive role. It's impossible to establish a ceiling when the guy is used 99% of the time in a shutdown role.
