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.

WOW, really, Pleks plays against the best centres in the NHL, every game....if his only job was to go out, feed Patchs & never go in the corners or dirty areas on the ice he'd have 50 points by now! Let Eller play with Chucky & Gally and they will produce. MT was trying for the first 20 games to get "his boys" producing by mixing lines, he then broke up our best young line we've had in years (Eller, Chuck & Gally) and people wonder whats wrong with Eller? Why do you think St. Louis fans are lineing up with trade proposals for Eller? He is a good hockey player who is being missused some would say abused by MT!
Whitey and Weise are old friends, know each other well & know each others game.

ps I feel like throwing up everytime you mention the name Kostitsyn.....
