I hate Moen he should be benched or White but not Eller he is one of the rare guys on the bottom six that has offensive skills and is still in the learning curve (assuming Galchenyuk and Gallagher doesn't stick if they do they are top 6 IMO)
Moen has been honest but let's face it he is not better than Prust so he should be a 4th liner as well.
I'm seriously not sold on benching Eller when there are 5 players who deserve as much to be benched then him and other which don't matter at all.
I like White but if someone can be benched and not affect the team it's him.
Why not try Eller with Galchenyuk and Gallagher? Prust won't bring anything except concrete hands like Moen he won't finish plays that Eller could. I don't get it by the way things are going if Subban doesn't sign soon this is going to be a long season.
I hope the red wings sucks this season and fires Babcock, with Babcock on the habs and the talented prospect pool that we have, he would make us a divisional contender and even a stanley cup contender in no time. Players like Eller is comparable to Abdelkader and under Babcock he is thriving .
Eller is one the rare forwards on the habs that still has a lot of room to improve that's why we like him, he scored 16 goals while playing with Travis Freakin Moen getting no pp time and playing 12 minutes a game.
The 1st line players have about 40% of their points production on the pp. If Eller got top pp minutes and top minutes he would have putted at least 45 points last year and he is still adjusting to the nhl, some players take more time than other to adjust. He won't be the player we expected him to be when we got him but i believe he can still be a good two way player.
