Only Bourque in the top 6 throws hits with any kind of consistency and he takes weeks or months off at a time.
Eller had one hit less than Prust (granted, 8 games difference but still not as little as you'd think). He does rushes the net, maybe not as often as someone like Gallagher but that's more because he's got more to offer than just crashing the net.

I disagree on your take of Eller. I feel he does play big. He battles hard, has no issues going to the net when that's the right move to do, doesn't shy away from contact or corners.

I don't think our centers are the issue, Galchenyuk-Eller-Plek is a great center line. The issue is more with our wingers.
