I know Eller is getting older now, but I believe his true realistic potential is a good two-way 3rd line center, who can put up 35 points a year, including between 15 and 20 goals, and who can very well replace an injured 2nd line center because he does have offensive skills (especially puck control).

I don't think I'm overrating him by saying this: last year I think he was 22 years old, and he put up 16 goals on a third line with grinders like Moen, and when he was put with a more skilled guy (Kostitsyn), he showed great offensive abilities.

So I don't think he has zero value, I think his value is good. Not amazing, but good. If he can play a little better than he's doing right now this season, his value could go up even a little more.
