Eller has been one of the better players the last 6-7-8 games. Finally getting put on a scoring line and looking good. His play along the boards is exceptional. Some questionable offensive plays here and there, but his defensive game is outstanding and severely underrated. The way he's played the last couple of weeks are why I still believe in his potential.

The way to unlock Eller's potential is to play him with competent scoring wingers. Has nothing to do with Gally. Attributing Eller's play to Galchenyuk is selling Eller short. Eller has played extremely well the last couple of weeks, but was playing with Moen and Armstrong. Eller has always produced playing with quality linemates, he did it with AK, he did with Desharnais this year for a couple of games and he is doing it again now that he's back with wingers/linemates with some actual skill. He should have been on a scoring line a long time ago. He really is a player we should be developing to his full potential. His defensive game is superb and it gives the habs another option outside of Plekanec to matchup against quality opposition.
