How do you know Eller will only be a 2nd liner ? He's 23 and playing better than ever, not only that but aside from Chucky, he's our forward with the most raw abilities. What did Eller do to you ?
Eller is not 23, he's 24, will be 25 at season's end, btw. He's coming back from a serious injury. I'd like to see him have a breakout year and score 70 points, but I certainly don't expect it. And at some point, you'll have to realize that Eller has reached his potential. He's not a kid anymore.

Galchenyuk is 19 and he's been going nowhere but up since coming back from his injury.

I'm not saying that Galchenyuk is better right now. I'm just saying that it's not far-fetched to assume that he could surpass Eller somewhere during the season. Eller could be the better player this year, I just wouldn't bet my money on it, tbh.
