Offensive ceiling to a 23 year old on a horrible team playing 3rd line? Eller might not be a high end offensive player but everyone said the same thing about Plekanec when he was 23, and Desharnais wasn't considered an NHLer at that age.
Just going by what I see. If he can learn to relax with the puck and make his reads then sure, he can be a top offensive player, but that's a hard thing to develop. He's a little too excited with the puck and can force things or miss reads. And it's not like him being a 40-50 point shutdown center would be a bad thing...
