Surely he can adapt over time. I think he just needs to simplify his game. He should use his big frame in front of the net and along the boards and learn to use his slick hands in close.

I think Vanek could show him a thing or too. Eller obviously doesn't have his offensive IQ but I still think it's higher than most think. I think Eller just tries to do too much at times. Also, maybe he shouldn't have gained more weight in the offseason.

I think they'll keep him. Bourque and Gio will be gone. We have a chance to sign him dirt cheap. This is the worst he'll be with a decent chance of him regaining previous form. We'll have a solid bottom 6er with size who can play center or wing. Really don't see why they have to trade him.
