So, as I said, if Eller doesn't develop beyond a ok offensively ok defensively unspecialized player he's replaceable, and the replacement is already on the team.
Why ?

As in why do you think that White is better than Eller on face-offs? The only
thing we know about it, is that Eller did take more face-offs, against better
opponents.

Also why do you think that 16 goals is Eller's ceiling? But White, who
is older, and has never had more than 2 in a season is going to surpass that.
Is it because Eller lacks the offensive skills that White brings?

And if you are arguing that White is going to learn to play defense as well
as Eller, I think he has a long way to go.
