Eller is progressing year after year.
He gained some weight last summer and is game has clearly improved.

SCap is good. And will be RFA after next season.

Just getting out of a slump (2 points in 9 games prior to last game).

He is 61st in points among centers in the league.
So this makes him a very good third line center as far as offense is concerned.
His defense is certainly top-6.

But the most important: he is a two-way player who is still progressing at 23 years old.
There is very little missing to see him get 60-70 points.
I am ready to wait and in the mean time, he is certainly not hurting us as a third line center.

In the mean time, we should be very happy to see him get two PP points with his first game on top PP.
Note: he has the same points as Mike Fisher (4.2M SCap) and Steve Ott (2.95M).

Based on numbers ($, points, progression, age, TOI), we must keep Eller.
He is just starting to mature.
