This team will not succeed as long as David Desharnais is a top 6 center.

That being said, Eller isn't that good. I hope I'm wrong but he doesn't look like a natural talent. He isn't as fluid as many dangles and he doesn't have the quick release of many snipers. Eller is a guy who can be good at everything(or rather, many things, not all) but I don't think he'll ever be great at anything.
I disagree, in many ways, I feel that DD is blocking Eller's development to some extent. He's already a very good player who can compete against others teams 2nd line, whereas DD should be exploiting other teams 3rd lines. JM actually used DD in a way that maximized his skillset. DD's point totals have somehow miscasted him as a number 1 center, he isn't.
