Offensively I think it can end up being a wash. Eller is more creative offensively but has a few more brain fart moments.
All that being said, bigger, stronger plekanec? Sign me up!
That's my exact same line of thought, but I'd give the edge to Eller because while his defensive game will not be as sound as Pleky, he will more than make up for it with his physicality and his creativity offensively.
I think those brain farts will actually diminish as it's one part of Eller's game that will progress as he gains more confidence.
