As for the junior stats.......plenty of players with very suspect hockey IQ have put up big numbers in junior.
I'm not denying it, i'm simply saying that Eller did have enough IQ when he was younger, and in his only year in the AHL, he did very well (57 pts in 70 games).
Considering that his 22 assists are among the best in the league for a center last season.....mayby his vision and hockey IQ aren't really that bad....it's just that we'Re not used to see a rougher type of center (Gomez, DD, Plek, Koivu did all have great hockey IQ.....but that was about the only thing they've got....Eller isn't the same type of player)
