I'm a big fan of Eller, but White needs to get some games and I think this is one of them. In other games, I see Eller on the 4th line, and switching places with Prust often, especially when Habs have last change.
Perhaps, if Eller were small or a poor defensive player. He isn't. He can play on a 4th line for a good team. I'd rather have him in the line-up over White or Army if we need to shuffle the lines. He's been just as physical as Army and brings more offense and overall skill to the lineup. Why have him out over Armstrong?
