Ok, so by taking a look at our "Real Season" stats, this guy is our best center right now with 8 points in 9 games... while on the third line. I think this is good enough for him to earn a spot in the top 6 next year and I wouldn't be bothered by him centering our first.

Lets compare his stats to our "supposed" #1 center Desharnais. DD has 3 POWERPLAY POINTS in the real season, while non of Eller's 8 points are from the PP.

What will be Therrien's excuse to not let him center our first line? that Eller had better wingers than DD during the playoffs? thats ridiculous, I'm not a Therrien hater but am tired of our high performers not being rewarded.

Plekanec is still good, so I would like him to return as our #2 C. Eller has really proven himself in the post season and I can see him being a 65 point center in the regular season.

PLEASE let the line ups look like this starting next year:

Pacioretty - Eller - Gallagher
Bournival - Plekanec - Andrighetto
Bourque - Galchenyuk - Vrbata
Prust - Briere - Weise

**DD is traded to Nashville for Ellis

Gorges - Subban
Emelin - Ellis
Tinordi - Weaver
Beaulieu - Pateryn

So in the span of two weeks, Eller deserves to be our first line center although: in this post you say he should be traded for a 4th round pick. Talk about being bipolar
