Downie provides 50-60 points if he stays healthy, while adding grit and agitating the opposition. Eller has potential to be a 60-70 point player, but at this point in their careers Downie provides more than Eller does.
Well, Downie has never hit 50 points, so thats just potential too.

At any rate, its his most recent injury thats concerning. Eller is coming off an injury too, but its very much a "the devil you know" situation for the Habs.
