Both Desharnais and Eller are struggling. Desharnais is overmatched in a harder minutes role, especially with his wingers failing to produce, Eller has zero confidence and no role on the team. Realistically, neither one has a future on this team at this rate.
I don't think Eller is struggling he's only played two games..One on a third line and the other out of his natural position at wing.

I thought he had a decent game last night.
Nothing special but wasn't out of place.

I really believe the issue is Desharnais. He doesn't have the jump in his stride like he did last year and seems to be hesitating a lot.

Once Desharnais finds his game again I think this line with Eller or Pacioretty will find the back of the net again.
