As for Eller, since being separated from the EGG line, he's got none of that.
You keep harping about how Eller has sucked and only himself to blame. Great. Doesn't change the fact that when DD sucked he was given some serious help to bounce out of his funk. Eller has not once received the same type of help.
It's really not that difficult to admit. It's not a knock on DD at all.

That is PRECISELY what I said you keep doing, and why people say you are biased.
DD stepped it up after he was given the best two wingers, sheltered minutes, off. zone FOs and PP ice time. He didn't snap out of his funk while on the 4th or 3rd line, or by playing with Briere and Bourque, or Galchenyuk and Prust.
Ya, Eller is playing like crap. You don't have to repeat it 19439323 times. Everybody knows it. The discussion has more to do with how to get him out of it. And real solutions, not ''he needs to get his head out of his ass''. Nothing will change if he keeps being used the same.

They have used him as a winger on the 2nd line which everybody knew was going to fail.
On the 3rd and 4th line, he gets crappy wingers that haven't produced much with anybody this year.
Briere and Eller's difference in pts via their scoring ratio is 6pts over 75gp. Hardly something to mention.

DD did get some coddling, and he did a great job responding to it. I don't understand why you can't admit that. He was playing like crap, then was put in the best position to succeed. Eller has not received the same luxury. There is absolutely nothing wrong with admitting that, and it doesn't mean Eller is free of criticism. Jesus man.

Well then maybe you should step back and look at your own posts. Maybe you get sucked into doing the same thing because it certainly look like you're hung up on your own agenda.

You're obviously dillusional and completely wrapped up in your biased,k extreme views, so I won't bother trying to pound logic into your brain, it's a wate of time.

You win...Eller is great and Desharnais sucks.
