Can't say I agree with that. If anything, it looked like last year all over again. Whole team plays like crap, and it's Eller taking the blame.
Eller was used on the 4th line. We lost, the 4th liner gets replaced.

This kid has had about a million sticks thrown in his skates. Every coach puts some fingerprints on their players in a positive way (RC aside, I think this guy was horrible and thought absolutely nothing to our guys), but most of the credit goes to Eller imo. He's the guy that has had to work for his success the most out of all the other players since joining our team.
He still isn't getting all that he deserves. He still hasn't been given a chance with two top 6 wingers nor is he getting PP time. It's all less of an issue because we sit at the top of our division, but that doesn't mean he's getting exactly what he should.
