Im not really digging the way some are trash talking Eller, there are a few loverboys out there, but as I see it, far too many of you are in a hurry to blame it on Eller...
Especially after you guys won a game without him, pure hypocrisy.
I don't care what anyone says, NO he has not proven himself, but he has NEVER been given the chance, any Habs fan that thinks differently, either just don't like Eller, or you are being stubborn!
He will never be given a chance to shine for you guys, as I mentioned in an earlier post, Gally is much more talented, and thus will have a longer leash and given more responsibility early on.. Before Eller was traded to the Habs, he would pass the puck, shoot, score for the national tram and so on.. Ever since he joined you, he has become a puck hogger for some reason even on the national team...
Again im not bashing your team, or management this is not Montreals fault, nor Ellers it is just pure bad luck..
Danish media are already speculating in an Eller trade or a move to Europe..
I say let him go, PLEASE for Danish Hockey!!!
Please take no offence
When Eller was acquired, our center depth wasn't all that great. Desharnais wasn't part of the plans. We had Gomez and Plekanec, with Plek heading into free agency.
I don't get this whole "he was never given a chance". He has played multiple 20+ mins games over the years and has been used in important roles many times. Just not offensive roles all that much. Mostly because he has never shown he could take a game over offensively except once against Winnipeg.
I hope he steps up this year. But he will have to show he's able to do it before he's given DD or Plekanec spot.
