There is nothing wrong with that, but if you expect him to be flashy like A Gally or Max Pac then you will be dissapointed. He has not been poorly used, he is just not the player that will be an offensive beast, just a very solid role player.
Moen has stone hands. Eller does not. If you think he has stone hands you didn't watch him last year. For all his many flaws last year being bad on the puck was not one of them. He clearly has zero confidence.

This doesn't mean Eller will be more than a 3rd liner You could be right. He might always panic when he gets the puck, who knows. He won't be the first who can't put it together at the NHL level. But comparing Eller to Moen skill wise it's not even close.
