How many ice time did JM give to Eller ? What about PP time ?
Now do the same thing for RC and now for MT(can't really say anything about him after one game though..)
Yes they all misused him. Coaches lose their jobs easily in this league, they all try to save their damn job. It's understandable to go with DD wich is a known commodity right now than just give more time to Eller for his developement and wait a year for him to flourish.
I am tired of seeing players development slowed in Montreal, going back 8 years there are enough players that could form 2 or 3 good lines yet here we are still in the same position as we were when Gainey took over. Still rebuilding, still not using players to their potential and then running them out of town for basically nothing. I cannot believe when we traded Halak for Eller and some guy now playing in the ECHL that was our best return available, to see Eller continue to struggle from one regime to another after seeing the same things jappen to SK, Grabo, and others that sometime we will actually pass the torch to a new generation of players.
