Not only are we pushing back someone that can contribute more than players supposedly ahead of him, but it's also not the best idea for his development.

To me, at the beginning of the season, Eller and DD were almost on the same playing field. Last year, DD got the treatment Eller should have also gotten, meaning, play with skilled wingers and get PP time. AK and him formed a great duo, they should have never been separated, except Cunneyworth was just in way over his head and completely lost sense.

This year, Eller has been our 2nd best center, yet he constantly have to earn more ice time over less deserving players.
Key word bolded.
