Eller, Emelin and Diaz.

Eller still deserves some patience IMO but he needs to continue to improve. We can only ask for so much offense from a 3rd line role but I'd like to see him force a debate about our future center combinations.

One of Emelin and Diaz if not both need to show they are more than solid bottom pairing guys, they should be more prepared for North American hockey this year.

Even in an 82 game season 50 pts for a 3rd liner would force us to consider moving him up. 50 points from the 3rd line is Jordan Staal level.

I think some of you are expecting too much, I think Eller has the potential to reach that level but playing in defensive matchups with grinders and Bourque it isn't going to be easy getting assists.
