Well, he did well in his faceoffs, IIRC. There was that...

I have to imagine that I'm the only one who sees Eller gaining the zone effortlessly almost every time he tries, since nobody else mentions it. Seeing as how this is a major weakness on the roster, I can't see why he isn't used in key situations to at least set up an offensive chance.

And between Eller and DD, I don't really know who will solidify the longterm #2 centre position on this team. They both have their weaknesses. And I don't really care who gets it, as long as the team is better for it. We don't need to trade DD, however. If Eller doesn't work out as a long term #2 centre, he can be a great option for a shutdown 3rd line C. DD, likewise, could do very well on the wing with less defensive responsibility.
