Not to downplay how hard it was for DD to make the NHL, as someone his size is always going to be doubted, but it's not like Eller was 1st round pick because of his last name. He comes from a country where hockey is an afterthought, that's barely scouted. Coming from a hockey family helped him make the Swedish league perhaps, but he was drafted for his talent.
