Singling out Eller when the whole team played bad in the ONLY game Therrien's has seen this roster play is just dumb. Given Therrien's comments before the season it's clear he doesn't think highly of Eller.
There are many more players that deserved to get benched over him. It's just plain stupidity. No pre-season is not an excuse. The ****ing season has started, **** counts now. How can there be consistency is ONE game. It's not like it's been 10 consecutive games under Therrien that Eller has been flat. He player Eller 13 minutes in a game in which he wasn't even the worst player. Cole, DD, Pacioretty, White, Armstrong all played worse than him. Hell I even forgot we had White and Armstrong playing that night...they did nothing.
It's the same crap in Montreal all the time...the coach puts his ideology and favorites before everyone else. The player is put in a position to look bad, we trade him at his lowest value and they succeed elsewhere. The same ****. Rinse and Repeat.
I guess with Andrei and Gomez gone, Eller will be the new scapegoat.
