He's not experiencing any 'growing pains', he's turning 25 soon. We should not expect any improvement from him.
Faceoffs, really? Some of you guys are still overrating him big time.
A very telling stat (yeah, i know, stats) is that he's got almost a 1/1 ratio for goals and assists (11/12 this year, 44/56 career). Last year was sort of an anomaly for him, it seems (8/22).
He's got the skills you want from a winger: size, speed and a good shot. Why not?
DD and Gangsta are not going anywhere, so I'd convert Eller to wing and give the 3rd line center spot to Galchenyuk permanently.
with Pleks gone home for family reasons (I really hope all is well there) I say why not move Eller to wing, on the EGG line.
Eller can still take draws if need be and he has the right skill set to fit with the 2 Gally's. And it's Florida, so theywould pose less of a threat to our 3rd line if Briere or Bournival are centering that line.
