I don't think Eller is being "pushed to be more intense" so much. It's more that Therrien just isn't a fan. I'd like to keep Eller, but if your newly hired coach doesn't want to use him, what are you going to do?
IMO intensity is not much of a problem for MPS. I think some tunnel vision has kept him from doing what you'd expect from a top 10 pick. He's still a fantastic skater and has size. He's not the most creative player offensively, but generally makes responsible decisions. Right now I think he'd contribute on a line with the Gallies.
