You Eller-haters are out to lunch.
It's interesting how this board has such a stereotype of centers as the only guys allowed to make fancy passes while ignoring the importance of keeping possession, the one thing Eller is far better than anyone else on this team at. Keeping possession while skating through the neutral zone is the reason Gomez lasted as long as he did after all.

A 40-50 point shutdown center is a 2/3 C depending on the makeup of the team. It's a perfectly realistic projection of Eller.

What is not realistic, is the accusations that he's effectively a plug, or that he's less skilled than Moen, which is one of the most ridiculous things I've heard here, and that says a lot.
