What is really impressive is that absolutely nothing was given to this kid. Just serious hard work, focus and determination.
He was given something: the third line center job. And under Martin, he had found his niche, and as long as he was playing good defensive hockey and didn't complain, nobody was bothering him. But then Therien came, look at him, pulled the rug under him, and told him he needed to want it. And look at the result. This year, Eller wants it. And in the end, like you say, the solution came from him. He had it in him.
