A lot of people said the ceiling of Eller was a 3rd line center. The ceiling..
There are some that believed he was just a 4th liner, 3rd at best.
It's hard to be certain about Eller's ceiling, even at this point, as much as I'm concerned.
To me, if you have Eller as your #3 C, well this position is not a weakness in your lineup.

If you have him as your #2 C, I just can't come up with any conclusion in that situation. I still think one day he might become a decent #2 C. To me, he's already a very adequate/way above average #3 centerman.

Generally speaking, I'd prefer the term "middle-sixer" (2nd or 3rd line) than bottom-sixer to describe his potential.
