"no PP time and wingers who can't score"

Why is it that Tomas Plekanec and Brian Gionta are fine but Lars Eller isn't?

DD had a slump. DD got out of his slump. DD is now one of our best forwards. Lars Eller started hot like Brian Savage. He has been pretty much offensively impaired since November. DD at least has a career of proving he can score. Eller has just Andrei Kostitsyn level inconsistency.

Seriously, it's like we're recycling old Kostitsyn arguments. "He's being played as a left winger when he's a natural right winger!" "The team has the wrong expectations!" "He's being given third line time instead of top six time!"

In the past three games Ryan White has been a better player than Lars Eller, offensively and defensively. Explain that without pointing to DD.
