Eller will be fine on the wing when he realizes that his strength is taking the puck hard to the net. Hopefully he noticed the succes that Pacioretty and Cole had doing this. Much like those two he is a great skater with great size. Even when this tactic doesn't directly result in the goal it often draws penalties.

Eller is a little too smitten with trying to be a playmaker from the side boards and he just doesn't have the vision to be excel at it. I think he is a huge wildcard that can really elevate his game and make a difference in the standings.

A little more Cole in his game and little less Thornton and he will be a huge asset to this team.
