Unfortunately, many on this board over-rate the skill level of Lars. He is a great skater and a good teammate, but isn't a playmaker. He doesn't seem to read the offensive opportunities like DD can. If Eller was so good, he would be on either top two lines. I must say, Eller played better on the wing during Pacioretty absence.
The only way I see him on the top two lines is as a winger. That's it that's all!!!
I wouldn't say DD is a better player overall... at least not that clearly. Both of them bring different aspects. DD is for sure more creative offensively and has better hockey sense, but Eller is bigger, harder to knock off the puck, solid offensively, and great defensively. DD, when on his game, is incredible and very fun to watch. When he's struggling, he's horrifying though. Eller, when on his game is fun to watch, when not on his game, he's just average)

I love both of them.. I'd really consider moving Galchenyuk back to the wing and slotting Eller between him and Cole.
