I see the media hit job on Eller is out full force.

It's true, he might not be more than a 3rd liner..but he's already on the road to being a good one, even if he lacks the nasty side everyone wants from grinders.

Still, I think he's better off elsewhere. His time in Montreal is over, you can see it in how defeated he looked in the last game.

From what I saw of him during the lockout he was making some quite good passes in Finland...and yes it's a different game there but SM-liiga is not the KHL, the league is filled with physical grinders and includes smaller rinks...

I don't know what it is, Eller seems to panic in the NHL when he tries to set up plays. I'm not convinced it's completely a lack of sense, but I'm also not sure if it'll ever go away.

I hate the Jan Bulis comparisons though, Bulis was almost 30 when he had his 4 goal game.
