Unless of course you think Kunitz is best LW in the game. Most goals, points and +- from a LW. Superstar? Not really.

I don't blame the person you quoted for wanting to see more than a half season of success.

That being said, if Eller continues the pace then we have a solid player on our hands.
Tall center can get 50+ points and play a two way game.
Ahead of Bolland in my book unless you expect him to drop.
His progression has been very constant and what we see on the ice can not be denied.
I do not expect him to slow down and he was very good with Galchenyuk.
He improved all season long: 9 points in his first 18 games, 21 points in his last 28 games (pace of 70 points), 14 points in his last 15 games (pace of 76 points).
Is it too much to expect him to have 50+ next season?

50+ points with no PP, two-way player.
Among the centers that have more points than Eller, how many got no PP?
BTW, 22nd in ESP.
Tlusty, Galchenyuk and Seguin are listed as center.
So he is 19th in esp among centers.
