Just don't expect the kid to light the lap by being on the first line without PP time for 14 minutes a game. It doesn't equal the sum of its parts.

I disagree with whitesnake on his hockey IQ. Compared to puck hog pleks he is better in the IQ department and cost 1/4 as much. Not that its a huge achievment, but we could replace pleks wih eller.
Quite surprised anyone would make this claim. Plek is a great 3 zone player, if Markov wasn't off to the great start he's having we would all be talking about Tomas' resurgence.

I am absolutely loving his play so far, and from a total contribution point of view Eller has a long to go to be in his league.
