Yes, DD is capable of producing 50 to 60 pts in a regular season but you have to give him ice-time, the best wingers and PP. I'm pretty sure Eller can easily duplicate the same production given the same opportunity and environment.

Between Eller and DD, Eller has more upsides and plays a more complete games. I think with Eller's progression last year, he has surpassed DD in the depth chart.

I'm just sick that you keep using his production of his only good year, to pin him as our 2nd line center.. like if we don't have better options.
The way I see it is we have at least 3 better options, and I'm not a fan of Briere by any stretch.
