Eller is a decent player but listening to some of the griping in this thread you'd figure it's Crosby not getting a shot.

First it was wawawa Eller has no wingers. Tonight he was placed with last year's top line and you still hear whining. He's not playing in his position. In a couple of games Therrien will place him at center and what will the excuses be then? Wawawa nobody helped him shoot the puck towards the net.

When the trade with the Blues was made Pierre McGuire pointed out that Eller is not the player Habs fans wish he is. Look at his pedigree. He was never a goalscorer nor a big points getter. He can be a top notch 3rd line centerman if he dials in some intensity. All the posters who claim he is a 1st or 2nd line centerman are in for a world of hurt.

I guess this is as good a time as any to bring out the slogan:

He needs to start getting it together because guys that want it more will take it from him. Lets not forget Louis Leblanc, he could easily steal Ellers spot, and boom ba boom boom boom, press box time. He should play much meaner than he does, he needs to finish a few checks and throw that big frame around. We need this kid, so c'mon Eller, make us proud.
