But to me he looks like an elite 3rd line center, capable of shutting down top lines, manning the PK, hitting, and bringing secondary scoring.

Basically the prototypical playoff player, the type of 3rd line center that separates contenders from pretenders.
Eller got 30 points last season.
How many third line center score 30 points last season?
None.

Just looking at cup finalists:
Campbell (13), Kelly (9), Kruger (9), Shaw (15).

He was 37th in the list of centers but a few are not real centers (Cammy, Tlusty, Seguin, etc.).
So among real centers he is probably among top-30 centers in the league.

Elite third line center
Can you give five team who have a second line center who scored 30 points?
I see TBL, Pit, Wsh, Car. Any other team?

Plus Eller is good defensively, more than the average center.
