Until Eller is fully developped, you just can't compare the value of both players. Like I said, for a 22 years old player, I think Eller's game is way better than many older players.

Especially in Montreal where we had no big skilled center, he's a gem.

Once he gains confidence and experience, this guy gonna be a beast for us.

But, like they say, to receive, you must give and that's what happened.

Prior to Tarasenko, Eller was my favorite Blues prospect. I heard his 2 way game compared to Yzerman's in his young days.

He hardly gets powerplay time which irritates me. Perhaps he will begin to, especially with his good puckhandling and passing ability.

That spino-o-rama dropped my jaw.

My JOKE was in reference to the joke that French Canada is becoming.
When you don't know or understand the history of a population, you just shut up. French canadians are open minded and for the most part, bilingual. There's absolutely nothing wrong about wanting to have a coach that can speak the language of the majority. How's that a joke, tell me?

You hire a coach so you can win. Not to speak to the fans. If the blues hired a coach who could speak nothing but Pashto, but somehow made the blues cup contenders every year I'd be cool with it.

You're right Habs fans have never made fun of anyone else's culture and Canadians don't bash the U.S. and small-mid market teams constantly. He was totally out of line to think people would have a sense of humor on the internet... (since you can't tell the difference today)

I cant believe Eller just scored 4 goals. That penalty shot was the best I have seen for some time.

Yeah 5 point game was crazy to hear about, about time he just got to own one and make Montreal take him a little more serious.
