As I already mentioned, if Eller keeps playing like he did Saturday, he will force himself back in the lineup. Maybe on wings though.
Only because Therrien decided it. It's not like Eller played an entire season and was crap in comparison to the other two players, Therrien made up his mind after 1 game. In fact Therrien made up his mind in the summer when he insisted that Eller would be used on the wings.

Give Eller a role and he will fill it. Keep bouncing him around and he'll look like a player that bounces around. When given the 3rd line centre role, he filled it. When given the winger role the last few games, he was starting to fill it. What role Eller has is up to the coach, but Therrien already made up his mind after one game. Sounds very similar to what Martin did with Sergei, O'Byrne, D'agostini etc etc yet people aren't complaining for what Therrien has done.
