Umm no, just no.
You can't make an educated evaluation of the two being top 6 players when only 1 of the 2 have actually got the opportunity to demonstrate what he can do.
Its pretty hard for Eller to show his vision on the ice when he's playing with pylons don't you think? I guess the old adage of "surround him with better wingers" doesn't prove its worth when it comes to Eller.
Unless Eller is given a chance, stop saying he's not a top 6 because quiet frankly I don't know who you people watch when they are on the ice, but Eller shows he has the skill set to accomplish a lot, but again he's not given the opportunity.
He has 1 bad game at the start of the season, benched for 2, plays exceptionally well with anyone he's with.
DD has been useless for what 10 games now? Yet he still gets top line minutes + PP + no benching.
Do you think the problem is Eller's skill set or the way DD is treated?
