Lol, obviously not. You said last season Giroux = Eller value wise. Im pretty sure you would disagree with that this year though right?
When I read you calling him an excellent prospect, I was reading it as you stating, write now, today, he is still considered an excellent prospect.
Also this rookie couldnt break into Montreal's top 9...
I have watched most of the Habs games, and Eller did struggle a bit through some of the beginning and half way through the season. But he started to find his groove towards the final playoff push, and stepped it up even further in the playoffs.
I think his lack of point production is also reflective of Martin's system and his line mates. I can see him becoming Montreal's #2 center after next year. Right now Montreal is paying Gomez too much to not have him centering the top lines, but that may change when Gomez's contract is easier to move.
