The guy doesn't know when to pass, and more often than not makes the bad decision in the offensive zone. He's great on the PK,
but overall pretty average in the defensive side of the game.
Hell, Bourque has more goal than him despite Eller's increased responsabilities and Bourque's injury!!!
Eller is flashy but nothing to write home about overall. My bet is he's gonna be traded this summer.
Hmmm...I must of counted at least 6 or 7 great defensive plays by Eller last night. He played a GREAT game vs the Jets, was a factor in all 3 zones last night.
For a guy who rarely sees PP time, he's got 4 goals and 19pts...
Eller IMO, is one of the reasons why the Habs are so solid this year...being able to ice 3 scoring lines is what every team wants.
