Sorry for the negativity; I'm very happy about the win all the same, but I don't think Eller is being given a fair chance when DD hasn't shown himself to be any more effective.
Eller is just not that good. Center or wing.

He seems to panic when he has the puck.

Jacques Martin syndrome. "As soon as you get the puck, pass it somewhere, regardless if its to nowhere."

Eller needs to learn patience with the puck. You cant blame Therrien for that. He has to be the one to make that change to fight for a center position.
